THE AMERICAN BLACK LUNG
SUDDEN DEPARTURE OF VULTURES
Menacing punk rock in the vein of Black Flag with a hearty shot of garage rock immediacy is served up by The American Black Lung, the Arizona-based quintet whose sophomore effort SUDDEN DEPARTURE OF VULTURES contains nine tracks of adrenaline-fueled rawk. From the fist-pumping four on the floor feel of "Werewolves by Night" to the merry-go-round rhythm found on "The Skyline Herself is Alive", tracks like "Behold the Mighty Galactus" and "Call Me Animal" explode with no frills aggression and the kind of rock 'n roll spirit few can muster. If you enjoy The Bronx, Every Time I Die, or anything hard, fast, and loud, buy this one and crank it up to 11.
