Showbread Age of Reptiles

The sophomore album from Showbread is still raw, still energetic, and still embodies something of a hip-swaggering attitude that harkens back to the rockabilly days. Completely modernised with sounds of fat and dirty electronic keyboards, screams, and mighty sing-alongs, it has a slightly less chaotic and frantic feeling, which was predominant on their first album No Sir, Nihilism is not Practical. Mixing together influences from Nine Inch Nails, AFI, Nirvana, and Stone Temple Pilots, this seven-piece outfit have slaughtered the genres with their Georgian charm and originality, shifting easily from high energy screaming to reflection and remorse at a slower pace without missing a single freaking beat. The main theme of this album is the era of cold blooded reptilians, with the songs bouncing from lizards and dinosaur bones to shredded skin and devoured things, tying it in eloquently to the trials of life. If you want something different, something amazing, this is most likely it. (Tooth and Nail)
