Label: STP Records - STP025 • Format: CD Album, Stereo • Country: UK • Genre: Rock • Style: Punk
The excellent Hell To Pay EP in more than suggested that its creators had the potential to make a big mark on the UK punk scene but Trioxin Cherry go far beyond making a mere potent impression with their debut album, unleashing one of the real treats of the year so far. Carrying hooks like a gunslinger and grooves like a nocturnal temptress, the release is punk at its riotous inventive Changes (Birds Lunatic Club Mix) - Hypnosis - Changes. Their two song contribution to the Chainsaw Ballads split with Thirteen Shots and Razing Hell only cemented their promise and an eager appetite for their presence and sound.
Since the recording of the album Murphy has departed the band to be replaced by Nathan Hart but he has left being part of a massive breakthrough and step for Trioxin Cherry.
After a Japanese spoken intro, opener Baka Manko thrills and catches the imagination by surprise. Also sung in the oriental language, the song bursts into view like a robust caped crusader, muscles flexing and energy brewing for a riot.
Riffs stride purposefully and rhythms stomp with crisp sinews but not for the last time it is the bass adding the danger to the character of the song. It has a grizzled throat to its prowl, a gnarly air which is infectiously Dream Echoes - Deeper In Zen - Tao alongside the similarly virulent riffs and soon to charge vocal declarations.
As to what the song is about who knows, but it matters not as the romp is irresistible and an open call to feet and imagination to climb on board with the awaiting rampage.
The brilliant Fly, Bill Murray! It is a composed yet hungry stroll of rock with nostrils flaring in its intensity and inventive chorus. The song sees the band just as keen to twists vocals and harmonies as they are their sound, but never taking its foot off of its anthemic potency as it roars and badgers Una Noche De Alegría - Roy Etzel - Melodías De Películas a fiery climax comes into view before making way for the equally voracious Psycho Killer.
Campbell takes little time to unleash a masterful howl as the new track establishes a predacious stalking of the senses, guitars climbing over ears with hungry riffs as the bass again bringing a bestial growl to the scenery. It is a massive start to the album which only builds and seduces the further you go, Good Day To Die the next triumph in line to steal the passions.
Campbell brings her Fay Fife like tones out for the song, backed by some great vocal shadows from the band. The track is a real predator, lurching and glaring with withering riffs beside antagonistic rhythms, but it is the glorious twisted surf rock toxicity of the emerging groove which is the most venomous and scintillating temptation and helps send the track to the top of the pile. The second of the pair launches from another deliciously primal bass sound, guitars soon replicating its lure in their own colours.
The song swings and saunters belligerently as it gives the kiss of death to the world below, adding its rapacious stomp to the dust. This track again develops new toxins and depths to its original premise but also an even greater aggression to its defiant spite and avenging intrigue. With another groove which simply winds so tight around the passions that lust bleeds from pores, the track is quite magnificent and with the previously mentioned song makes the atmosphere tough for the song splitting the two to contend with.
Not that the old school punk bred Ratbiter notices as it rampages with relish, riffs and rhythms abrasing with contentious brawls and badgering as ridiculously catchy hooks and another bass exploit provide something more to drool over. It is Hit Me - Trioxin Cherry - Lets Take Off And Nuke The Site From Space storming chorus though that clinches the deal, its venom and enterprise sensational.
Like a fog of intense sonic squalls and thickly clouded aural animosity, the song is the soundtrack to hell, a caustic hymn to the outbreak of ravenous cemeteries and waiting devastation. The album is completed by the excellent Rebelliona storming ode to the renowned UK festival. Starting with an acoustic caress of Campbell and guitar, the track explodes into one last stomp of punk rock.
It is the perfect anthem to close the release, like a mix of Holly and the Italians and Flogging Molly. Do remember to hang on after its conclusion too, as a great acoustic version of the same track is hiding in the silence. You are commenting using your WordPress.
