Get angry. Meth labs are on the rise. They stink up your apartment complex and neighborhoods, people are naming countless bands after this manufactured drug, its even giving a newly revised outlook on the term 'black tooth grin.' It's leaving sexy women ugly as fuck and ravaging our communities.By the previous line I of course mean, Meth Drinker is doing that.
Nine tracks in 43 minutes on this self-titled first outing from this New Zealand sludge trio released by Always Never Fun Records. The usual squalor of sludge is definitely prevalent here. Dirty, slow but catchy-as-herpes riffs followed by an outing of spastic punk inspired mayhem. It's all encased in this hideously strained vocal snare that pins you down like that belligerent monkey on your back that continually punches you in the head. Little fucker makes you angry as hell but you put up with his shit anyway.
Meth Drinker's riffs are as thick as your 3 AM phone call but nowhere near as shameful. Violence permeates to the core of this soundtrack of delusional highs. Like the meth in their cups is here to destroy your teeth, liver, kidneys, brain, and skin; the drugged out anger and anguish is here to devour you equally, if not greater. Support this band, when you can. Not much you can do at the moment other than wait for news and listen to the two tracks on their Bandcamp.
