Genres: Traditional Metal

Man Of The Hour  

This Scottish band had a definite for-the-fun-of-it vibe going, what with their everyday-guys image, corny stage names like Steve Power and Tommy Concrete, and tongue-in-cheek song titles such as "I Only Give A Shit" and "Werewolf Lover". Musically, there was a clear Pantera edge in the guitar work, particularly the chugging riffs, while the vocals ranged from higher-pitched screams (kind of a poor man's Warrel Dane) to a gruffer roar. Not quite thrash, not quite doom (they do slow it down on occasion), not quite traditional metal, but really a mixture of all three, Destroy The Machines Of Slaughter (the band's second album, released in 2007) was never going to change the world, but it's a fun listen, and a good recommendation for those into straightforward, no-frills metal. The band broke up in January 2010.
