The Red Chord – Fed Through The Teeth Machine
Metal Blade Records – 2009
It’s album number four for Metal Blade darlings The Red Chord! And that’s saying something I you’re not a straight forward death metal act from the 80’s… or Gwar.
Fed Through The Teeth Machine is a powerful punch to the nuts after that meh-fest known as Prey For Eyes (which had me hearing the term “jock metal” way too much… which it wasn’t which made me even more confused and angry! All the strengths and none of the real weaknesses of The Red Chord are present in this album: technical riffs, complex drums, off timing to keep you guessing and the Revere foursome’s patented blend of intellect and brutality! Always political, no-holds-barred and a little psychotic, Guy Kozowyk’s lyrics are the focal point of Fed Through The Teeth Machine. These aren’t schizophrenic ramblings or visions of rape, dismemberment or rape. They’re cogent arguments for the conservatives at the ready. And yes, his vocals are still fucking brutal!
Overall: This album’s got teeth! And they’re bared from beginning to end, just waiting for a chance to sink themselves into you and pull you though their machine. CHOMP CHOMP! But I’ve got to say, being digested never seemed so goddamned AWESOME!!!
