Boiler - _The New Professionals_
(Mayhem Records, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
While on the outside (and maybe even after a few listens) Boiler may seem to be a standard Biohazard meets ProPain groove metal outfit, there lies much more beneath this NY trio and their hard n' heavy sounds. The LP, _The New Professionals_, is a kick in the teeth to those metal kids that think metal music has to be hard n' heavy with no room for groove. This record kicks ass for the most part, laying on us thick slabs of metal n' groove that'll shake any foundation. Dark and broody emotions fill the music of Boiler, lashing out intense doses of creative stop n' start numbers that'll amaze and impress fans that like their metal varied. With each listen, many will get rocked hard by "Stegosaurus" and/or "Vice Grip", thus allowing Boiler to keep pummeling us while we're trying to get up from the canvas following the solid one-two punch. Check this record out, 'cause it's a contender.
