"Necessary Evil" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by Snidermann


Judging from the CD cover, Juggernott's "Necessary Evil" might be a post-apocalyptic glimpse of life after atomic annihilation. Just beneath the band's name are the alphanumeric characters "44-27291 313w509g393s." After a quick search of the Internet, I discovered those numbers correspond to a B-29 named "Necessary Evil." And, according to www.childrenofthemanhattanproject.org: "'Necessary Evil' was designated as one of the 7 planes taking part in the Hiroshima mission. Its role was to carry the scientific observer team and photographic equipment and was one of the three B29s of the primary strike force. Piloted by George Marquardt, it departed Tinian Island at approximately 2:50 on the morning of August 6, 1945."

If the band's intention is to compare the power of their music to that of an atomic blast, they're not far off. The music on "Necessary Evil" is tight, very well structured and played with a lot of heart and soul. Personally, I found the lyrics to be just a little too dark for my taste but the music rocks hard and heavy, the band is obviously talented and the entire CD is well-produced.

I would recommend that any fan of heavy music pay a visit to the band's website, listen to a couple of tracks, and judge Juggernot for themselves. 

Necessary Evil: Shane McWilliams - bass; Steve Lawrence - drums; Barry Bolinger - guitar.

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.
