Track by Track Review


Theme dotdotdot
Thrash Twang (Instrumental)

"Theme" pumps and grinds out chord thrashy with warm progressions and thumpin' percussion. Rhythmic and infectious in a trash conscious sorta way.

Crow's Feet dotdotdot
Aggro Twang (Instrumental)

Thundering tom toms and crash and thrash guitar chase you down and rob you of any need for melody. Aggro twang.

John Law dotdotdot
Big Twang (Instrumental)

Large twang chord rock, pounding drums and edgy guitar, with a chaotic feel and uncomfortable gate. The twang's the thang.

Theme 2 dotdotdot
One Chord Twang (Instrumental)

"Theme 2" is a highly rhythmic nearly one chord assault ending in a scream.

Torpedo dotdotdot
Smash Chord Twang (Instrumental)

"Torpedo" is much more melodic than the rest of the tracks here. Double picking and near-surf tone, with lots of drive and twango. More relentless than it is fluid.

Breakout dotdotdot
Chord Twang (Instrumental)

Chord progression rock with more thrash and trash than style. Great drums and rhythmic boogie guitar, with max edge.

Golden Strings dotdotdot
Soft Twang (Instrumental)

Slow and moody, yet a little dissonant, "Golden Strings" moves through a semi-liquid country line with a fifties style and modern power twang. Not quite pretty, yet soothing, provided you started out all agitated.
