Neurotica - Living in Dog Years. Reviewed by antiGUY

I never heard of these guys before coming to antiMUSIC. That changed real quick. Our managing editor, Keavin, loves to blast Neurotica’s debut album Seed at full volume in the office.  I admit I was hooked from the first note.

Who are these guys and why haven’t I heard of them? They are a killer heavy rock band from Florida. They had a lucky break when none other than Brain Johnson of AC/DC discovered them.  Johnson got them a record deal and produced the bands debut. The result “Seed” was critically acclaimed and set Neurotica up as one of the hottest heavy bands of the 90’s. But then bad luck hit, their indy label’s distribution company went under, so just as radio was picking up the single and word was spreading the CD stopped dead in it’s tracks.  That didn’t discourage these guys. They went back into the studio and recorded their follow-up which I am reviewing right here.

Think of how many bands had a kickass debut album. Only to release a pile of s*** for a second record. Good thing for Neurotica that didn’t happen to them. Point of fact, Living in Dog years blows Seed away.  Although Brain Johnson wasn’t on hand this time as producer, this is an album he could be proud of.

Note for note this album rocks, I would go so far as to call it one of the best heavy metal records of the 90’s. The riff heavy tunes and full throttle vocals don’t slow down one bit. From the opening number, Ride of your Life , to the equally aggressive Those Dayz These Dayz, Neurotica has found their niche and have stuck with it. The title track is one of those songs that just gets stuck in your head and won’t go away. Down and dirty guitar riffs by Shawn Bowen and Louis Polito, with an agro rhythm section courtesy of  G.J.Gosman (Drums) and Migwell Przybyl (Bass), topped by theover the top vocals of Kelly Shaefer make Neurotica THE BAND to contend with for the Gold. Not one wasted second can be found here.  If the major labels have any brains we will watch these guys go far. Their days as independents are numbered and rightly so.

Living in Dogs years is in stores this week. Go get your copy today hell click here to order it online (It's even on sale). . Don't trust me? Need some encouragement, download the MP3 for the first single, "Ride of your Life"

Did I hype this enough? Seriously this CD kicks! Be the first on your block to discover this band before all the posers jump on the band wagon.
