Dreck Sau - _Schmerz_
(Nuclear Blast, 1999)
by: Paul Schwarz (6 out of 10)
Labelling Dreck Sau as "Machine Head wannabes" would be more than an exercise in lazy journalism, it would be a mistake. For much as the bolshy, simplistic riffs slam down like so many Ten Ton Hammers (sic), the abrasive chops and percussive thumps of Dreck Sau don't embody the same from-the-streets attitude. The oppressive feel surrounding the repetitive pounding, the name ("Filthy Pig"), the album title ("Pain") and song titles of a similar depressive and negative nature give Dreck Sau a more stark character and puts them more in alignment with the industrial contingent, and that's not even mentioning the fact that their sound has closer similarities to Sinister than Skinlab. Unfortunately, however, much as I can differentiate Dreck Sau from any one specific stereotype, the fact remains that what they produce musically is rather uninventive and also rather unexciting.
