"Paul Walker" (No Sleep Records; 2013)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

Drug Church are punk rock and that's all you need to know. Profanity-filled tracks about everything that punk deems stupid are used as fodder on "Paul Walker." Usually the lyrics of the punk movement are great because they spit and kick at modern societies attempt to box in everything. The song titles on "Paul Walker" are just as wild: "Reading YouTube Comments" is one example. A lot of the tracks on "Paul Walker" have a rock vibe to them but when the punk element gets going, it's time to mosh.

The guitar on "Paul Walker" has a great sound and groove. The bass chews up the ground beneath, and, the drums are solid when it gets heavy. The vocals are yelling in your face -- better put on a sneeze guard because you're going to get some spittle. The track "Attending A Cousin's Birthday Party" gives way to the album cover.

If you've been looking for a punk record that doesn't get stale after the first five listens then pick up "Paul Walker" by Drug Church.

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.
