What can possibly be said about the PainmuseuM for those that have not heard it yet? For starters if you dare to play this CD you should be prepared to be brutalized by the molten metal that is being delivered by these guys. The lineup is “Metal” Mike Chlasciak who is most noted for his excellent work with Rob Halford as both a touring and recording guitarist. Mike is a force of nature on Heavy Metal guitar and a Legend among his fellow shredders. He has brought with him on drums Bobby Jarzombek who not only was the driving force behind the Halford lineup with Mike but most recently has taken the drum throne in Iced Earth and Demons & Wizards. The bass guitar was performed by Steve DiGiorgio (Testament/Death) and vocalist Tim Clairbone rounds out the group. Tim’s screeching wails and guttural growls are comparable to the likes of Bobby Blitz. Tim also defines the look of Metal with his vintage 80’s styled spikes and gauntlets; most likely his look was honed for Hatred. Adding all these forces together and there is some seriously powerful Metal going on. Mike’s playing has never been better as since this is his own project he has a little more freedom on what is getting done. Jarzombek is in my top list of drummers and does some excellent work on the recording. He and Mike are in total groove together and it shows on every track.
