Audrey Horne - _No Hay Banda_
(Candlelight Records, 2005)
by: Jackie Smit (
You've got to be kidding me. Members of Gorgoroth and Enslaved (among others) channel their creative energy in unison and this is what they come up with? To be fair, _No Hay Banda_ was never going to be reminiscent of any of its members' more misanthropic musical leanings -- this much was made clear by the numerous overblown press releases that preceeded it. But even by the alterna-rock standards it attempts to emulate however, songs like "Get a Rope" and "Confessions & Alchohol" don't quite cut the mustard. This is post-HIM goth pomp at its most bovine, concocted by a group of musicians who have clearly had more than their fill of living in squalor. I'm just not sure what to shake my head at most: that certain other media sources have actually been taken in by this drivel, or that people would go as far as to compare Audrey Horne to Faith No More -- a band whose collective boots this sextet could not lace on their best day.
