Dead Rabbits - Sin Eater Review

by Dan Upton

Let's see... a band named after an 1850s gang from New York and a CD named after a person who "consumed" the sins of a dead person. Dead Rabbits formed in 2002 with members of Stigmata and The Clay People and label themselves on their MySpace page as Skynyrd on steroids. Not that bad of a comparison, I'd say. Sin Eater serves up 16 tracks of southern-friend metal in the vein of bands like Seemless and Black Label Society (plus one track of 13 minutes of silence...go figure?). Perhaps the best comparison in terms of sound though would be Monster Magnet on Powertrip, particularly in terms of Mike's vocals but also some of the sludgier guitar riffs. The original songs are all pretty good, enjoyable to listen to, but the highlights are definitely the assortment of covers: Hendrix's "Manic Depression" and "Little Wing" and CCR's "Fortunate Son," the latter recast as a slower boogie. I can't believe it's taken me this long to write this review, because I have nothing but good things to say about this band. Do yourself and pick up a copy of Sin Eater, and look for these guys to go places.
