EDITORS’ NOTES

Dead Cross’ freaky evisceration of hardcore, thrash, and noise rock is meant to burst eardrums and leave listeners in a daze. “The Future Has Been Cancelled” is a sonic tantrum, featuring Mike Patton’s coughs and gasps over bee-swarm riffs and drummer Dave Lombardo’s warp-speed beats; “Obedience School” blasts avant-garde intensity while also dropping operatic howls and fight chants into the melee. There’s even a version of Bauhaus’ goth classic “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” which is contorted into hammering alt-metal.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

This is a Mike Patton & Dave Lombardo album you want!

I am digging it. Patton is the most diverse singer out there and he doesn't mind taking risks with his music. I feel he makes music he likes not what the people want. I respect that and luckily I like 98% of the music he creates. Dave Lombardo is the back bone to this album and he is a undeniable master at his craft. The guitarist and bassist I'm not familiar with their work but they really sound great here.
