St Madness - _We Make Evil Fun_
(Nasty Prick Records, 2004)
by: Jackie Smit (5 out of 10)
Whenever a band's core lyrical departure point centres around comedic themes, they invariably always end up treading the thin line between affectionate parody and outright farce. Case in point is Arizona's St Madness, whose absurd metallic jibes range from the mildly amusing ("No Mercy", "Sexual Abuse") to the downright stupid ("You Are My Food", "Evil Elvis"). Stylistically, _We Make Evil Fun_ is unashamedly adolescent heavy metal -- well played and solidly produced. But even with the odd killer riff thrown into the mix, St Madness' brand of humour is frequently not as witty as it so desperately wants to be, and every so often it seems to take itself a little too seriously to illicit anything other than brief, passing curiosity.
