PiercingMetal Thoughts: I must admit that I am not what can be considered a “diehard” follower of any of these bands but I do like a handful of tunes from each of them and have seen them all in action over the years of my music scribe adventures. As a matter of fact, American Head Charge was one of the earliest shows that I went to as a member of the music press. It’s going to be a room full of movement when this show hits the Times Square venue B.B. King’s which is the stop nearest me so I will be aiming at being there to support the fun. What do you readers think about this tour? You can let me know in the comments section below so we know where your own head is at. Thanks for reading.

“Destroy What You Enjoy” by Powerman 5000

Artist: Powerman 5000
Title: “Destroy What You Enjoy”
Label: DRT Entertainment
Release Date: 8/1/2006
Genre: Hard Rock/Punk Edge
Rating: 4/5

Every now and then an album comes out at the right moment in time. Timing can be everything and Powerman 5000’s “Destroy What You Enjoy” may have timing on it’s side. DWYE feels like a solid summer party album. It’s loaded with a good kind of mindless, catchy fun and when you listen to tracks like “Wild World”, you feel it would be right at home blasting at a BBQ or a keg party. The songs are solid throughout with a quality production level finding the guitar sounds of Johnny Heatley and Terry Corso heavy. Heavy, but not with a grating feel and instead using a clever yet minimal use of effects. DWYE is rawer and thrashy with less effected/electronic elements than the band was known to use in the past offerings. I would say while dispensing their Sci-Fi they are displaying a more punk-pop influence.
Spider’s vocals are strong with a great raspy quality that keeps him from sounding cheesy, like so many of the whiney sounding, pop-punk singers that seem to be rehashing lame uninspired, follow the guitar chord, melody lines. Spider’s vocals have a power and rawness that I enjoy quite a bit.
