Dustsucker - Jack Knife Rendezvous Review
by Gary Schwind
This album begins with the sound of a revving engine and squealing tires. It's a pretty good metaphor for this entire album. This is an all-out pedal to the metal assault from the first chord.
Dustsucker doesn't spare anything in volume or tempo. They believe in turning up to 11 and playing at a tempo that is bound to get some fists pumping. These guys play so fast, you might break out in a sweat just listening to it.
The raspy vocals and the music remind me of Motörhead. Some Black Sabbath influence also comes through in the intro to "Under the Hammer." Every song on this CD rocks. I especially like "Burning Glass" and "Witch of Death."
I want to leave you with an admonition and a recommendation. Let's begin with the admonition. The next time anyone tells you that rock is dead, you hit 'em with this CD. (OK, so you don't actually have to hit the person with it. Just recommending it will suffice.) This is a band that plays a balls-to-the-wall style of rock that could easily be found in an arena near you. My recommendation is simple. If you like loud, fast old school RAWK, this is a band you need to check out.
