Track by Track Review
Starting slow, but amping into a faster number with some double picking and some whammy. Frantic drums and bass moodiness drive the beat. "Volcano" is a loud and powerful number with drama and excellent writing.
Big tribal thunder with dark melody lines and double picked danger. "Headhunters!" is segmented by frat boy chants. This is very dark and features serious chunk.
The Search For Osama Bin Laden
Leaning on "(Ghost) Riders In The Sky" for feel and beat, "The Search For Osama Bin Laden" is an adventure in infectious beat and spooky choruses. It's a vocal, but it is an intriguing number with surf creds and clever writing.
Sinewy tribal drums, long ringing chords, moody bass, and a splendid bit of arranging. "Dark Continent" is downright spooky, with tension and visual pleasure. A superb song!
