Rough and Tough
Released: Nov 2011
Label: Earache Records Ltd
Opening their debut in search of an "Awesome Party," these hilariously old-schoolish Bay Area-via-Pittsburgh heft-rockers proceed to throw one, with Scott Attwood's friendly, frantic high register leading the way to the booze. They sing about swords, shields, earthquakes, dynamite and dirty deeds with tongues half in cheek, like they stack Kix and Axe LPs next to the Motörhead at home. "Rough and Tough" seems to concern a latchkey brat, and the Grand Funk-cowbelled "Cougar'd" may well be the funniest, most danceable metal song about an older woman ("in her prime... only 30 over 16") ever.
