Carnivore for carnivore...
Genre: crossover metal (thrash and hardcore punk)
This album is a legendary crossover metal album whose forte is not so much the music as the hilariously politically incorrect and far out lyrics which deal with just about anything thing that is provocative and controversial.
I mean, how can you go wrong with titles like "Angry Neurotic Catholics", "Ground Zero Brooklyn" and "Sex and Violence" and with choruses like "Jesus Hitler / Adolf Christ / Is this the Second coming / Or the fourth Reich"?. Well, I guess things can go wrong if one fails to see the irony and sarcasm of the lyrics.
The music is very punky, but also draws extensively on thrash metal. Peter Steele's vocals are very different from what Type O Negative fans might be used to, as he makes use of an angry yelling (and often arhythmic) style which suits the lyrics and the music very well. That being said, the track "Five Billion Dead" could have been a Type o Negative song. Amidst all the punk noise, there are some very cool metallic riffs and some surprising tempo shifts.
I think that fans of old school thrash metal and hardcore punk will enjoy this album. If you tend to get easily offended, you should stay far away from it, but if you don't mind a bit of ironic political incorrectness, you might actually see the humor in the lyrics.
