HomeMusicReview: Anodyne Anodyne “The Outer Dark” (Escape Artist Records) Hello, this is the Dark Price, Satan. When not orchestrating such catastrophic events as that “Baby Bob” TV show, I like to kick back with a Coors Cutter and the new Anodyne CD. Sure, they’re not as metal as Marduk or Slayer, but they’re great background music for me down here in Fontana. I mean Hell. I meant to say Hell. Anyway, this trio of scary musicians from NYC put out track after track of visceral, pounding, relentless metal-core. My favorite song on the album is ‘Finest Craftsman’ with its lovely lyrics, “The lost art of grave diggers / Lasts forever / Will the sun shine on the day I die? / All these moments / Amount to nothing / Always is always / Always forever”. From a personal standpoint, it’s nice to see those hardworking grave diggers finally get some of the respect they deserve. Can you believe they don’t have a union? My only real complaint with the record is that it boasts only eight tracks-no sympathy for the Devil, wouldn’t you agree? But if you love metal (and I know you do) be sure to go out pick this one up. I’ll be seeing you soon.
