Damn 13 - _The Dynamite Gospel_
(Sweettooth Recordings, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (8.5 out of 10)
With ex-Monster Voodoo Machine frontman Adam Sewell at the helm, there was no need to worry about what was in store with the first few listens. No doubt it was going to be good. Having been an avid fan of MVM in the mid-'90s, I was stoked to hear new material. Their demise a few years back led to several spin-off bands and side projects. The music and ideas were there, but something was lacking. With Damn 13, all the right buttons are pushed. Damn 13 are set from the get go to make sure they come out on top no matter what, and if that means bashing our heads in with infectious grooves, then so be it. With the vibrant opener "Destroy a-Go-Go" and on through powerhouse track "Righteous Dynamite", Damn 13 showcase a solid hard rock vibe that'll rattle your head and leave you thirsty for more. Too bad it's only a four-song EP (13 minutes), because Damn 13 are great. Watch out for these guys.
