MAN-EATERS- Gentle Ballads For The Simple Soul LP
From the same Chicago freaks that brought you TARANTÜLA, CÜLO, and BLEEDING GUMS, comes the debut album from MAN-EATERS. "Gentle Ballads for the Simple Soul" sits at the perfect crossroads of ugly '81 LA punk/HC (think "The Decline" or "Hell Comes to Your House") and glammy mid-70's American hard rock. We're talking high quality stuff like the first albums from KISS or BANG! MAN-EATERS combine the precision and drive of golden era US hardcore/punk with the fluid riffing and driving rhythms of 70's hard rock, perhaps bordering on NWOBHM territory as well. Like a sonic shot of Malört, MAN-EATERS' rugged debut roars out of the gate and sits heavier with each spin.
