Pist:On - _Number One_
(Fierce Records, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
New York's Pist:On's debut album (produced by Type O Negative keyboardist, Josh Silver) is a hard-edged collection of soothing melodies and turbulent guitar riffs. From the opener of "Parole" through potent songs as "Grey Flap", "Eight Sides", and "Electra Complex", the band seems to create an honest and raw take on keeping a consistent groove on _Number One_. Much like the rough and raw guitar styles of Corrosion of Conformity or Only Living Witness, the band's material seems to stay clear (as much as possible) from a slick production and focus more on delivering a solid blow rather than a comfortable guitar riff. Singer Henry Font has quite a versatile voice and with the help of Josh Silver (who produced the last two Type O efforts) guiding him and the band, the band was able to produce a debut album worth listening too. For those that enjoy music with melody, yet ample on might and integrity with each song, you'll dig this one.
