Meldrum :: Blowin’ Up The Machine

Frontier Records
CD Review

By The Atomic Chaser

MeldrumFollowing up on their massively successful and monstrous' debut 'LOADED MENTAL CANNON', MELDRUM are back and they are taking no F@#%^KIN' PRISONERS!!! The band's highly anticipated sophomore release, "BLOWIN' UP THE MACHINE" is packed and loaded with enough balls to the wall rock firepower to flatten an entire city!

The first thing that strikes me about this album is its power throughout. Never at any point becoming tiresome. Too many bands nowadays simply re-hash repetitive riffing, but on "Blowing Up The Machine", Meldrum's guitar is dead on perfect. Laying down some blazing solos and maximum riffage to put all those so called new meatllites to shame. Moa Holmstein's vocals are downright nasty and wicked as hell, just the way I like it! As she belts out big time on tracks like "Purge", "Down Your Throat" and "Miss Me When I'm Gone" featuring Lemmy Kilminster from Motörhead.

The band's tight chemistry and strength comes out in every song. If you are looking for an album which fuses the music of Pantera, Black Sabbath, and Corrosion of Conformity, here you go. Personally, I thought Meldrum couldn't get any heavier than their debut, but they proved me dead wrong. Make no mistake, Meldrum is THE REAL DEAL. All you got to do is get your hands on "BLOWIN' UP THE MACHINE" and press play, I DARE YOU!
