SUPLECS
POWTIN’ ON THE OUTSIDE PAWTY ON THE INSIDE
NOCTURNAL

The New Orleans rock scene has always been produced some of the most exhilarating bands, and the latest album by the trio known as Suplecs fits right in. The 10-track endeavor finds the NOLA outfit fine tuning its metallic punk crunch thanks to producer Pepper Keenan from Corrosion of Conformity’s expertise, as “Gotta Pain” starts as a molten metal attack before the sinewy sludge seeps through while the moody instrumental “Cities of the Dead” eerily resonates the spirit of the band’s hometown, currently picking up the pieces from the disastrous Hurricane Katrina. While not everything here hits the mark, such as the trite “Black Cloud”, for the most part POWTIN’ ON THE OUTSIDE PAWTY ON THE INSIDE succeeds by fueling its rock machine with a voracious display of sludge-ridden versatility that fans of Zeke, Motorhead, and stoner rock everywhere will be glad to tune in and burn out to.
