Drowningman - _Rock and Roll Killing Machine_
(Revelation, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (9.5 out of 10)
Could there be a better band out there? Maybe so, but Burlington, Vermont hardcore/noisecore/metal act (leaning heavily metal, if you ask me) Drowningman are one of the strongest acts out there nowadays. Their last recording, the sonically powerful EP _How They Light Cigarettes in Prison_, was punishing. The new disc is even -more- punishing. Blistering guitar riffs, hardcore momentum and vocals (crazed and melodic) spill out at you in a feverish pace, leaving little time to get out of the way. These guys could easily crush any band live -- and I'm willing to put money on that. Choice cuts: "When People Become Numbers", "This Year's Most Fashionable Signs of Weakness" and "The Truly Dangerous Nature of a Man Who Doesn't Care If He Lives or Dies". Man, those are great song titles.
