SEVERED HEAD OF STATE
"Power Hazard" (Havoc; 2007)
Reviewed by Mike
Crusty hardcore punk crew Severed Head of State growl their way through the latest bruising offering, the 14-track "Power Hazard."
Southern groove, punk rock chaos, hardcore heft, and a vulgar display of power help this disc sound like a cross between DRI, Entombed, Coliseum, and Kill Your Idols.
Definitely for the disenchanted and misdirected, "Power Hazard" has all the tools necessary to drum up a riot at any given time, as this Austin, TX / Portland, OR unit diligently scrapes the underbelly of rock, excavating a true gem amongst the debris along the way.

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.
