AVAILABLE FOR PROPAGANDA
Italy’s nu-metal sensation Linea 77 return with another sanitized hard edged offering that sounds quite similar to their American counterparts Papa Roach and POD. Perhaps a common producer in Dave Dominguez steered the band in the very radio friendly direction, but it’s no matter. AVAILABLE FOR PROPAGANDA is the title of the latest 12-track endeavor from this quintet, whose faux punk attitude permeates throughout cuts like “Charon” and “Evoluzione”. Even a sneering delivery and a hearty dollop of surliness can’t save this disc from third-ratedom, especially if they keep writing trash like “Lost in a Videogame”.
