"Foamin' at the Mouth Live" (Outlaw; 2005)

Reviewed by Snidermann

So, at first glance, American Dog is a down home, hard-drinking, good ole boy rock'n'roll party band. That was my very first impression and it was dead center correct. "Foamin' at the Mouth Live" was recorded live in the studio, complete with a full studio audience, and it's nothing but kick-ass songs about beer and whiskey with a Southern rock flavor. Check out the set list and you'll get a damn good idea what this CD is all about:

Another Lost Weekend
Workin' Man
Barely Half Alive
Blame it on the Booze
Got You By The Chain
Too Damn Sober
Hear Me Howlin'
Drank Too Much
Bomber (Motorhead cover)
Last of a Dying Breed

American Dog's "Foamin' at the Mouth Live" holds nothing back and has no hidden agendas. When a song title says "Too Damn Sober," "Blame It On The Booze" or "Drank Too Much," you know just the hell they're talking about. 

"Foamin' at the Mouth Live" rocks hard and makes me want to go to the bar ... any bar.

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Excellent southern metal that brings to mind a morphing of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jackyl and Molly Hatchet. Chunky guitars, vocals with a gruff twang, rhythms that rock and lyrics about booze, sex and rebellion. How can you go wrong?

There ain't enough great Southern rock out there these days but American Dog is determined not to let it die. Any fan of Southern metal will love this CD, from the kick-ass rockers to those irresistible ballads. I hope this band goes on tour 'cause I'll be right there in the front row!

Southern Dog: Michael Hannon - vocals, electric bass; Steve Theado - guitars, vocals; Keith Pickens - drums, barking vocals.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
