Soil - _Throttle Junkies_
(MIA Records, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
The last time we heard anything from Soil it was the five-song EP _El Chupacabra_ [CoC #37], a blistering rock 'n' roll montage of heavy riffs and sharp adrenaline spurts. Continuing where they left off, this strong quintet have really gotten a hold of a heavy sound, mixing it well with some serious licks and truly memorable chorus numbers. As heavy as Pantera at times, though still chiming off melodies like vintage Galactic Cowboys, Flotsam & Jetsam or even Alice in Chains, Soil make sure they make their mark some way or another with the material on _Throttle Junkies_. A young band with much gusto. I like it. Also ace mixing work from producer extraordinaire Steve Albini. Choice cuts include "Damning Eden", opener "Everything" and the thrilling chunkiness of "Stand to Fall".
