Brick Bath – Rebuilt – CD Review

Remember a little old band called Pantera? Well they ain’t nothin’ compared to Brick Bath. It is a bold statement, I know. But it is true.

Brick Bath‘s 2003 opus, “Rebuilt” [Crash Music, Inc.], takes Powercore to the next level of ferocity. While Pantera was hammering-out crap over the past several years, Brick Bath was mastering the fine art of brutality. Their hard work and genius shines through….

(And I like Pantera, so don’t even start on that hate mail.)

Intense, forceful rhythms bleeding sheer groove drive raw power mixed with brilliant guitar leads. Brick Bath has mastered the Powercore assault. Shrill growls drill through the relentless napalm blasts of utter fury. Brick Bath is stunning and addictive.

The best of these visceral cuts includes “Brutalize,” the smash-crackle-stomp of “At The Edge,” “Said,” “False State,” the killer cadence of “Habit Forming,” and “War Inside.” Brick Bath destroys the rules, their raging without mercy, without retreat.

Overall, Brick Bath has created one of the finest releases of the year. So get “Rebuilt.” Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
