I needed a post-Christmas aural assault to shake up the senses after all those fulsome, wholesome festive tunes and meals – no complaining – and have turned to the ever-reliable Mississippi Bones to pound in some welcome late-night rousing. This is their 2010 debut, and it presents the brash template from which this and the subsequent metal mastery continues to be forged. I’ll refer you to previous reviews here, not to make it easy but to encourage a wider reading and emphasise my sustained liking for their bone-shaking musical diatribe. Check out their web site here too. I don’t want to write any more – I just want to rumble.
