"Sons of the Pioneers" (Roadrunner Records; 2000)

Reviewed by Snidermann


The Workhorse Movement combines multiple musical styles into one ear-shattering CD that is a must for all fans of metal/rap - like me. The band uses hard rock/heavy metal, a full complement of rap and a weighty measure of psychedelic '60s sounds to make for a truly memorable spin. 

When I listen to The Workhorse Movement, I hear some major influences ranging from (of course) Limp Bizkit and Rage Against The Machine to The Doors and Led Zeppelin, plus a few others that are harder to identify. Not only was this a major musical experience, but the CD also comes enhanced for your computer, which offers some cool information about the band.

Another interesting fact I liked about Workhorse Movement is two fulltime vocalists; it works in other bands and it really works with The Movement.

The first song says it all: "Keep The Sabbath Dream Alive." Take that any way you want to.

The WORKHORSE MOVEMENT: Pete - bass; M.C. Myron - vocals; Cornbread - vocals; Joe - Drums and Freedom - guitars.

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.
