DEAD RABBITS


"Sin-Eater" (Overit; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

 

Featuring members of The Clay People and Stigmata, the biggest surprise that comes from Dead Rabbits is their Southern rock meets stoner rock grooviness. 

This Upstate NY quartet’s undeniable experience shines through here, meshing nu-metal nuances, ‘70s muscle rock, and a satisfying dash of doom to provide thirteen ass-kicking tracks chock full of substantially solid rock foundations.

When these guys are on, they rip, as cuts like “Open Season” meet somewhere between Megadeth and Monster Magnet, while the Hessian-esque stomp of “Trust” suggest these dudes had their Black Label Society patches from back in the day. 

Drawing from the gritty underbelly of rock'n'roll, the hazy blues and genuine decadent stance taken on "Sin-Eater" consistently hits you over the head with bong-sized riffs and meaty melodies that switch from COC-like boogie to the fuzzy psychedelics of Nebula, garnishing this disc a versatility that welcomes repeat headbanging smoke-outs.

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.
