Gat-Rot - Us Versus Them Review

by Mike Rapin

Have you ever had a love/hate relationship with someone or something to the point where you can like someone or something one time around, then upon that immediate second round, you dislike or are annoyed with he/she/it? This is the best way to explain Gat-Rot's Us Versus Them.

This CD is filled with great breakdowns and head-banging guitar riffs and can only be made better by the screams and drums. Upon first listen, the album is damn good and hard to stop listening to by mid-track or even mid-CD, and to add to the strong side of the CD, there are plenty of crazy political lyrics (to go with the equally barbed titles).

Then, you hit the second round of the CD after listening to the CD once through. The lyrics lose their shock value, and the screaming starts to become one-sided and monotonous. I don't mean to say the CD goes horribly wrong, but for the majority of decent sounding CDs (like this one), you can usually listen to them a few times through before actually getting sick of them. I'm not sure if this is one of those albums.

Overall, the CD is quite good, yet it is easy to get tired of it as well. I have to say that it's alright to listen to when angered and it's something I'm glad to have in my CD collection.

Track Listing:
1. Truth No Excuses
2. I Am Your Violence
3. Equilibrium
4. And Justice For Some
5. Is This The End (Of History)?
6. Make Today (Vindication)
7. Lowest Common Denominator
8. Where Will You Go
9. We Still Rise
10. Second Wind
