Album Review: Young Machetes by The Blood Brothers

Excellent, Based on 1 Critic

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Before the release of Young Machetes, the Blood Brothers mentioned that the album would return to the harsher, more frenetic sound of their earlier work. This is true -- especially of the opening song, "Set Fire to the Face on Fire," which immediately commences to shrieking and shredding -- but it doesn't mean that the band completely did away with the overtures they made toward a more accessible sound on their previous album, Crimes. Instead, the Blood Brothers find sneakier ways of incorporating their twisted pop skills into the fray.
