Hollister Fracus Has It Come To This?

A quick glance at the cover and you’d think this was a solo effort by a multi-instrumentalist clown. That probably would have been more listenable than what really lies inside, which is about as appetising as a glass of warm cod liver oil. Apparently, this Houston based “hard rock” quartet is influenced by AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Korn and the Deftones. Unfortunately, only the latter two seem to have shown up in this release. Has it come to this, indeed. (Albatross)
