Midnite Snake...er, crushing you like a bug

So, I don't know, maybe I went a little overboard in this review of Midnite Snake's latest...that bit about the Panzer tank seems a tiny bit excessive...but anyway, it's an extremely rocking album from a Pittsburgh trio whose drummer used to be in the Modey Lemon. Here's a bit from my review, published today at Dusted. Follow the jump for the whole thing.

"Midnite Snake makes assaulting, cathartic rock and roll, boiling out in squawks and bursts and screeching squalls of feedback, coalescing into monstrous slow riffs, then dissolving again into the heat and haze of distortion. Remember the first couple of Comets on Fire records, when you felt like you were being pummeled to death by guitars and yet you couldn't quite hear them clearly no matter how loud you turned things up? Same thing, this time from Pittsburgh, this time putting a krautish vibe in place of Comets’ amp-manipulated hippie spirit. Get ready, get earplugs. These guys will roll over you like a panzer tank and squash you like a bug. "
