Pike - _Lack of Judgement_
(Black Mark, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (2 out of 10)
Not too keen on this release after multiple listens. I can't get past the screaming grunts and I find the crossover sound the band delivers of hardcore meets funk and punk rather lame. The band attempts to be hard and "on the edge" throughout, and in reality it seems a bit too planned for me. I like bands that experiment with different sounds, but I think Pike may have tried too hard to be different. Sometimes being too different or creative has its drawbacks. Someone needs better blueprints next time.
