Arsenals – Stomp – Review

June 1, 1995

ad production, worse songs, and few hooks. There are plenty of unsigned ska bands who could “stomp” these guys into the ground.

All – Pummel – Review

June 1, 1995

Pummel is ALL’s first release on Interscope. The second with Chad, and the first ALL release that I’ve liked from end to end since Dave Smalley split.

Anal Cunt – Top 40 Hits – Review

June 1, 1995

Noise core to the extreme. They do “covers” like “Escape (the Piña Colada Song),” and the most killer version of “American Woman” ever committed to tape.

Accept – Death Row – Review

June 1, 1995

Death Row moves Accept into the ’90s under the power of Hoffman’s rock solid, aggressive guitar style and Udo’s piercing growl.

Tyranny Off the Beat – Review

June 1, 1995

Compared to the rash of guitar-driven industrial infesting the scene, the ten bands on Tyranny tend to take a more synthesized approach.

Hideaway Soundtrack – Review

June 1, 1995

Ten bands ranging from the industrimetal of KMFDM and Fear Factory to the Gothic of Miranda Sex Garden and the orchestral stuff of composer Trevor Jones.

Gothik – Review

June 1, 1995

Taking Gothic sub-genres from 1983-1985, Cleopatra has put them in a two hour, two disc set. There’s enough for everyone; don’t be greedy around that vein…

Amrep Motors 1995 Models – Review

June 1, 1995

AmRep is rather (in)famous for putting out music for the noise-conscious. This sampler is more straight-ahead punk rock. But there’s some good shit on here.

Veil of Thorns – Review

June 1, 1995

A melodic industrial swipe at your sensibilities. This is an advance, and I’d like to hear the whole album.

Undertow – Review

June 1, 1995

This rock/alternative band attempt tries its best to rise above the masses. Give them time. They have a good start already.

Trick Babys – Player – Review

June 1, 1995

While Trick Babys combine all the tasty flavors of bawdy and squealing female vocals and punky zest, they also have side dishes of raunchy mid-tempo blues.

Thought Junkie – Review

June 1, 1995

When these guys get supported and go into a decent studio, they’ll be able to compete with the MTV “Collective Soul” crowd.

The Technical Jed – Review

June 1, 1995

This debut from The Technical Jed is actually a collection of obscure singles and compilation tracks. I enjoy it more every time I put it on.
