Staff review by
I'm not sure why I am reviewing a Valient Thorr album. Don't get me wrong, I dig them and their straight-forward rock and roll rebellion meets metal style. The problem stems from the fact I've seen them live. Seeing them live is akin to watching a pride of lions terrorize the savanna, whereas attempting to capture all their frenetic energy into a studio is like watching those same lions at the local zoo. Both the zoo-lions and studio tracks are still powerful, awesome, and could conceivably tear you to pieces, but both still find themselves lacking when comparing that scenario against the band/pride where they belong in the wild.
