"Praying, Hoping, Nothing" (InZane; 2001)

Reviewed by Snidermann


I slammed December's CD into the player and, after the first song, I laughed out loud and thought "What the fuck was that?" The music of December detonates from the CD with such colossal force that it was hard to hear it all at one time. I was overwhelmed.

The pace is fast and frenzied with enough explosive energy to light a large city. Unlike some of the hard music of today, the vocals are rumbling and loud, full of emotions, without being obnoxious. I could barely understand some of the words, but what I can hear, I like.

One tune sounded like all five musicians were playing completely different songs all at the same time. What fun!

December's music is alive, take no prisoners, in your face and on your ass metal that is just simply good for the metal soul.

December: Kyle Brewer - bass; Mark Moots - vocals; Julian Peach - guitar; Jason Rickman - guitar; Jason Thomas - drums.

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.
