Besides having a great name, Mister Snake brings heavy rock mixed with bits of psych. This Jersey Shore band is composed of duel basses and drums that give it a very bottom heavy, neurotic sound. It’s like wading through a river of sludge for your ears. The album starts off on a dark note with songs like “Gutbucket”, “Teeeth”, and “Idle Time”. “Teeeth” is a tune that makes you feel like your spinning further and further out of control and closer to insanity. The album proceeds with “Angels”, “Crip Hop”, and “Pyrexia”. “Angels” is sort of a mellow song with a catchy guitar riff and strong melody, and definitely one of my favorites on the album. Finally the album ends with “GOD/My Life”. The longest tune on the album composed of 2 songs back to back. I was told this was in tribute to Black Sabbath, which you can’t go wrong with. I hear a lot of “Bleach” era Nirvana in these songs. The screechy vocals mixed with the sweet bass riffs give this album just the right amount of angst and urgency I am looking for. I would definitely put this on if I was in a shitty mood and wanted to let out my aggressions. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this band. The release date of their tape is unknown to me, but I’m sure it will be out soon. If you would like to check this band out, please visit http://www.myspace.com/mistersnakenj.
