Jesuseater – Step Inside My Death Ray

On Spec, Part 2: Jesuseater – Step Inside My Death Ray

I grabbed this one simply because, let’s be honest here, who wouldn’t buy an album with that band name and album title? Exactly. It’s also on a label called Deathwish, and it has songs called ‘Who Keeps Stealing The Bricks,’ and ‘Punching Southern States,’ so, c’mon.

Jesuseater’s vocalist is Shawn Brown, who used to be in a band called Dag Nasty with Brian Baker of Minor Threat and Bad Religion. I didn’t know this when I bought it, but hey, I see Minor Threat and Bad Religion connections anytime and I am happy!

I did more digging around online for info on this act and found comparisons to pre-‘In The Meantime’ Helmet, Black Flag (and ROLLINS Band), a band called Deadguy, even Black Sabbath.

I hear all that. I also hear stuff like Red Fang, the Shrine, and many others. But I think they have something of their own too, never quite falling into blatant homage to any of it. This is straight up rock and roll, unvarnished and rough, in your face and frickin’ loud. There’s no messing around (just guitar drums and bass blasting away), no growly vocals though there’s lots of hoarse yelling!, and just a pile of fantastic grooves and riffs and punishing battery lines. It’s honest, it’s blatant, here ya go!

Based on all of this, of course, it was right in my wheelhouse. This sort of no-holds-barred rawk is exactly the type of thing I like!

 

Lots of great tracks here, and plenty faster, but this one got my ROLLINS blood rarin’ to go, and it’s a great heavy stomper of a track too! CRANK IT!
