Trouble was formed in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1979 by vocalist Eric Wagner, guitarists Bruce Franklin and Rick Wartell, bassist Sean McAllister, and drummer Jeff Oly Olson. Drawing deeply from Black Sabbath for inspiration (with occasional nods to the psychedelic sounds of the late '60s thrown in for good measure), the band forged an uncompromising brand of classic metal all their own, made more unique by their gloomy down-tuned riffs and spiritual, often mistakenly religious lyrics, which quickly earned them the dubious "white metal" tag. The album and songtitle Run To The Light was thought to be a religious title while it actually came from Eric Wagner watching Poltergeist and writing it down.

The band toured throughout the Midwest during the early '80s before signing with Metal Blade Records and releasing their amazingly mature eponymous debut (later referred to as Psalm 9) in 1984. The equally impressive (and even more

TROUBLE The Distortion Field

Album · 2013 · Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Distortion Field" is the 8th full-length studio album by US doom metal/heavy rock act Trouble. The album was released through FRW Records in July 2013. Since the release of "Simple Mind Condition (2007)" there have been quite a few lineup changes and the only remaining members from the lineup that recorded that album are guitarists and princible songwriters Bruce Franklin and Rick Wartell. The band have gone through several bassist changes but didn´t find a permanent solution before the recording of the album and as a consequence the bass on the album are predominantly played by Bruce Franklin and to a lesser extent by Rick Wartell. New drummer is Mark Lira and Kyle Thomas (Exhorder, Alabama Thunderpussy, Floodgate) has replaced Eric Wagner on lead vocals (well...it´s not entirely true as Kory Clarke actually filled the lead vocalist position for four years before Thomas, but he didn´t record studio material with the band).

...the latter is the most significant change. Eric Wagner is a very distinct sounding vocalist and "The Distortion Field" is the first Trouble album not to feature his rusty voice and powerful delivery. But let´s get it out of the way right now. Kyle Thomas does a pretty fine job here. He is a very different sounding vocalist compared to Eric Wagner, but his raw and passionate delivery works just as well as his predecessor´s did. It´s not surprise that the rest of the band are well playing too. The lack of a bass player does affect that part of the music though and I think it´s a slight issue.

Despite the many lineup changes the music on "The Distortion Field" is still unmistakably the sound of Trouble. Hard rocking and occasionally doomy riffs, a driving rythm section and both heavier and more laid back tracks. The Beatlesque psychadelia of the nineties are almost completely gone from this release though. There are several strong tracks on the 13 track, 61:31 minutes long album, like "When the Sky Comes Down", "One Life", "Paranoid Conspiracy" and "Sucker", but also quite a few more standard quality ones, and in the light of that it can be argued that the album is a bit too long for it´s own good. Or more simply put there are fillers on the album that could have been cut and the album would probably have been stronger overall. "The Distortion Field" is still an enjoyable listen though, maybe except for "Have I Told You", which I initially mistook for a Pearl Jam cover. Trouble are not Pearl Jam, and I don´t think they pull of trying to be very well.

The sound production is relatively well sounding, but the drums lack some power and the bass isn´t heard much in the mix. So it could definitely have been better...

...so "The Distortion Field" ends up a slightly mixed bag and while I felt about the same about "Simple Mind Condition (2007)", and probably shouldn´t be too surprised, it´s still a slight disappointment. We´re still talking about Trouble though and even a slightly disappointing album by them, is still much better than a lot of other releases coming out these days. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is warranted.

Warthur
I was surprised to learn that Trouble's second self-titled album (their debut would later be retitled Psalm 9 to distinguish it from this one) was produced by Rick Rubin, because it lacks the deft touch he brought to other albums such as Slayer's classic recordings on Def American. Then again, the material here isn't exactly inspiring, consisting as it does of rote repetition of Sabbath-derived riffs and showing more or less no progress or development over the band's previous albums. If you are a keen Trouble fan then it might be enjoyable, but most listeners will find any of their preceding albums to be a superior choice.

Warthur
Opening with an (at the time) rare incorporation of synthesiser into Trouble's sound, the band's third album more than makes up for the somewhat underwhelming nature of The Skull and stakes out a powerful and original style for the band. The lyrics take a decidedly depressive turn this time around, without even the consolation of religion to hold back the existential misery, whilst the band benefit from the meatiest production of any of their early albums. I might be going against the accepted wisdom here, but I'd actually say that this is by far the superior of the first three Trouble albums, bringing the development of the band's sound over the past two discs to fruition wonderfully.

Warthur
Trouble's second album shows little musical development over the formula established in Psalm 9, and some sloppiness creeping in here and there prevents it from being quite as tight a release as their debut album. The Skull sees the band amping up the Christian content of their lyrics - perhaps as part of an effort to distinguish themselves from other doom bands emerging at the same time - but at points it seems as though the music takes second place to this message, with Eric Wagner delivering his sermons over uninspired riff and tired self-plagiarism. It's got some good parts, but on the whole it isn't quite as good as we know Trouble to be capable of.

Warthur
A landmark of early doom, Trouble's debut album is hampered by some occasionally dodgy production - whilst the guitar sound is more than meaty enough, the drums can sound a little thin at points - but this isn't enough to obscure its finer qualities. Though the lyrics have a heavily Christian slant, they don't suffer for it - there's none of the intolerably smug, preaching-to-the-choir air that a lot of overtly Christian acts have to them, and in fact they're easily as hard-hitting and dramatic as anything produced in the early 1980s.

But of course the big deal is the update of the sound of early Sabbath, which the band accomplish with ease, equalling and at points exceeding their inspirations in terms of sheer crushing heaviness. At a time of increasing speed, Trouble - along with Saint Vitus - delivered a great reminder that there were sonic possibilities inherent in slower metal that mustn't be forgotten.
