Imagine the world went to shit and there was this real Dr. Evil type in power - All that was learnt from mistakes in history was reversed, you were so pissed off that your body mutated into chunks of metal like that guy from Tetsuo (1989 Japanese film)...
Well that's how I would describe the vibe of Ho99o9's new album United States of Horror. You can almost taste the blood, sweat and tears in this album.
Let's be frank, you're not gonna be chilling out in your Sunday slippers whilst listening to this. 'War is Hell', 'City Rejects' and 'United States of Horror' are a handful of tracks that will have you tightening your boots and sparking your inner rebellion. There are a couple of numbers that do turn down the heat (probably to stop you from having an aneurysm and give you time to roll), 'Splash' and 'Hydrolics', like all traditional horror films will have you truely disorientated.
The album is a politically charged fusion of sounds from old school punk, to industrial metal and trap rap. The LA duo have just unleashed hell into our speakers and I think we needed it!
I survived a Ho99o9 show and I highly recommend you to catch them on tour! They do not disappoint - well that's if you can get in without the place being shut down on the first track.
