FREAX

"Freax" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by Snidermann

 

Freax is about the most aptly named band I have ever heard. This new CD featuring Keith Caputo, the former lead vocalist of Life of Agony, features tight, bizarre lyrics and high-quality production that take it to a new level of musical mayhem. 

Heavy music and strange, unidentifiable sounds erupt from this CD at a rate that is staggering. The lyrics make for dark and very twisted imagery. I loved it! I've listened to this CD a number of times already and I still haven't figured it out. I guess that's why I like it. 

Freax is to Marilyn Manson in many ways, with unique rhythms and choruses, more than a dash of electronica and some other shit I just can't identify. I know this much: Freax is anything but mainstream rock'n'roll. For that matter, it's not mainstream anything. If you're looking for something different, it doesn't get much different than Freax.

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.
