Genghis Tron – “Board up the House”
Philadelphia’s Genghis Tron has exploded onto the underground metal scene with their volatile sophomore album, “Board Up The House.” From the frantic allegro in “City on a Hill” to the seemingly never-ending drone of “Relief,” it is apparent that these young men have mastered their craft. They possess more than enough talent and vision to write crunchy grooves and pummeling drum parts as well as spacey arrangements that drill their way into the listener’s brain (in a good way).
The lyrics of this album fit the music very well, focusing on frontman Mookie Singerman’s fears about the world. This is one of my favorite albums, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in new, fresh, thought-provoking heavy music that is always worth another listen.
