"Armageddon Through Your Speakers" (Interscope)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Bionic Jive is a group that literally gives new meaning to the term rap/metal. Powerfully intense and thought-provoking lyrics provide the canvas to which Bionic Jive paints a vivid picture that is dark and foreboding. Make note: this shit ain't light listening.
The band's excellent storytelling ability is abundant throughout the recording, however, sometimes the dark subject matter gets a little too heavy and drags the mood down. But that is the only bummer to this otherwise very good recording.
Socially conscious, this band lives up to its name. There is a lot of jive, but it all comes together for a strong, solid performance.
Bionic Jive is: AKO Mack - vocals; Emerg McVay - vocals; Harry Luv - guitars; Cunni - bass; Chris Elsner - drums.
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.
