Welsh trio Taint reveal themselves a metal juggernaut, channeling everyone from Rush to Motorhead to Jethro Tull to Killing Joke on their latest effort SECRETS AND LIES. Organic, smart, and sludgy, the mesmerizing grooves, wailing solos, gritty vocals, and total fill a hockey arena up rock sound are just a few of this offering's strong points, but don't worry; the more you listen, the higher the count goes. Taint have found the perfect middle ground between Led Zeppelin and Entombed numerous times on this nine-track disc to rightfully catapult them into mandatory listening if you can't get enough Truckfighters, Intronaut, or Helmet in your daily diet.
