BONES BRIGADE


"Endless Bummer" (Coalition; 2006)

Reviewed by Spudbeast

Skate thrash masters Bones Brigade deliver another sonically accomplished album with "Endless Bummer," a steadily mid-paced thrash album that also features verses that fly at neck-breaking speed. 

Bones Brigade have an uncanny ability to make skate thrash have variety, from the opener "Fun Sponge," which almost has a classic rock feel in there toward the end, to the sheer massive breakdown featured in "Dr. Destroyer." 

Most songs follow the typical skate thrash variety but sheer talent allows Bones Brigade to rise above the crowd. For example, their shredding guitar solos and the guitar harmony at the beginning of "Meltdown" play off like a song from Metallica's "And Justice for All." 

Overall a very solid effort and definitely worth a look, especially if you're looking to get into skate thrash. 

Highlights of the album are the aforementioned "Dr. Destroyer" and "Enten War." However, I docked a guitarsaw because several songs aren't really that memorable and and feel more like filler.

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.
