HIGHBINDER


"All the Way to Hell" (Sin Klub Entertainment; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Mix some great punk rock with pure dynamite and you'll get Highbinder, a free flowing heavy metal outfit that rocks like a big dog. 

These Ohio rockers (this reviewer is from Michigan ... but I like them anyway) and their new CD, "All the Way to Hell" rock just the way you think a top notch garage band should rock - hard, heavy and with a fierce style that is truly riveting. 

As I was writing this review, the word "highbinder" popped up on the spell checker so I looked it up in the dictionary. The definition there was "a swindler; confidence man; cheat; a dishonest political official or leader; a member of a secret Chinese band or society employed in U.S. cities in blackmail, assassination, etc.; a ruffian or rowdy." Well, that just about sums up the sound of "All the Way to Hell." 

"All the Way to Hell" is one of the very best rough and raunchy garage bands I have had the pleasure of hearing this year and that is no small claim.

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.
