Teabag - _Teabag_
(Blue Meannie Records, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (
As stupid as this is going to sound, Teabag fucking rocks! It sounds stupid, doesn't it? But trust me, my metal brethren, the music of Teabag is anything but lame -- more like triumphant, melodic and impressively sculpted. From the ashes of Psychotic Waltz and DFA, this metal act has created a sound and style that stretched many boundaries, something they set off to do from day one. From the solid power grooves, melodic vocals and progressive / old school metal qualities, Teabag flourishes on this eight-song offering -- especially the harmonious "Shadows", the blistering-drive of "Earthbound" and opening track "Resisting Possession". New singer Ron Lerma has an amazing voice that echoes well above the thunder of the band and guides the listener through many intricate passages. I hope many of you check out Teabag, as they will surely be several metalhead's cup of tea. Now that sounded stupid again -- but I couldn't resist.
