Am probleme cu niste chestii

Am avut, de cand tin minte, o problema cu termenul shovel. Tot ce inseamna lopata, cazma, grebla, sapa, furca, secure, coasa, fierastrau imi da fiori reci pe sira spinarii. Nu mai zic ca titlul albumului de fata mi-a amintit de o recenzie a marelui Lenti Chiriac la un album S.O.D., despre care respectivul spunea: %u201CE ca si cum ti-ar da cineva in cap cu o sapa.%u201D Nu am ascultat nici pana azi respectivul album.

Am ezitat mult sa ascult Exodus-ul, dar daca tot mi-a picat in sarcina sa mai dau inca o saptamana material la disecat si motive de ras cu iz de grimasa, mi-am luat inima in dinti, unde se afla si acum, in timp ce scriu aceasta cronica.

Am avut dintotdeauna o problema cu revenirile trupelor dupa pauze lungi, la fel cum am avut mai mereu probleme cu solistii vocali de la Exodus. Chiar si cu cel de pe Tempo of the Damned, care alminteri a fost o revenire decenta, ba chiar interesanta pe alocuri.

Din punct de vedere muzical, Shovel Headed Kill Machine este atat de aproape de colegul sau de acum un an jumate incat ar fi putut lejer sa se constituie in CD 2, continuare, sequel sau bonus. Vocea lui Rob Dukes, despre care pe site-ul celor de la Nuclear Blast scrie ca ar fi o mare revelatie in domeniu, parca nu e asa pitigaiata si isterica iar productia discului o idee mai plina decat pana acum. Sectia ritmica merge la mare arta, avem riffuri cacalau, bas dublu pe saturate si baterie care suna in toate felurile si la toate vitezele. Daca ne gandim ca mai nou beneficiem de tata Lee Altus (ex Heathen) si de uscativul Paul Bostaph, lucrul asta nu mai e o surpriza.

Coperta, desi nasoala rau, este mult mai misto decat cea cu bosorogul care canta la pian. Asocierea dintre un album de thrash metal si un instrument atat de sensibil si gingas precum pianul mi se pare o mare barbarie, dar poate am inteles eu gresit mesajul. Aici avem o ditamai masinaria care sfarama cu o lama de otel rece (probabil lopata din titlu) o mare de cranii iar senzatia indusa stiti care e? E ca si cum ti-ar da cineva in cap cu o sapa!

Cum s-ar zice, SHKM poseda toate ingredientele pentru a se constitui lejer un candidat cu sanse reale la %u201Ccel mai trv album al anului.%u201D Pe mine insa nu prea m-a convins.


Sake more Nota: 7


The Musical Killing Spreee

After the rest of the line-up left
Which for us all it was a really f***ing theft
Everybody thought Exodus was bound for a halt
But no, ‘cause from the ashes rose f***in' Gary Holt

He called Lee Altus (ex-Angel Witch and Heathen)
He drafted Paul Bostaph from Slayer and Forbidden
He enslaved Jack Gibson, who also sings in Vile
And he made Rob Duke scream, there's no place for denial.

Chorus:

Aw, what a great album from the 80's!
Ah, how we came to wet your panties!
We s**t on the new millennium and we feel fine
“cause we'll always, always sing like in 1989!

(Or 1992 maximum, mother f***er!)

And a couple more about great Rob Dukes
His shrieks come without warning like killin' vocal nukes
He doesn't have any sense of melody at all
That's why we chose him damn right at the first call!

We didn't like production on “ Temple Of The Damned ”
It was too clean and cute – we like dirty instead
We threw in a couple of good solos and riffs
The rest we didn't care – sounds good after few sniffs.

Chorus

The very final sentence is all about the words
They come out in cheap rhymes like killin' f***in' swords
You have to trust our judgement, no matter if you please
That all throughout the album they are as good as these.

Daca v-a plictisit si vi s-a parut ridicol, ati gustat deja putin din “Shovel Headed Kill Machine” .
