Reign of Terror

Reign of Terror by Sleigh Bells
Released: Feb 2012
Label: Mom + Pop Music
Brooklyn's finest cheerleader-metal duo is back with more candy-coated ultraviolence. Reign of Terror is a blood feast of vicious guitar riffs, bleacher-stomping concussion grenades and meticulously feral noise, topped by breathy frontgrrl Alexis Krauss' gorgeous, lethal come-ons and put-downs. Basic concept: Murderous femme Transformers covering "We Are the Champions." "Comeback Kid" is a raging pep talk, but it's the ballads, particularly cock-rock stunner "You Lost Me," that will really leave you bloody. If nothing here makes the Hunger Games soundtrack, then somebody screwed up.
