Javelina’s triple-vocal attack offers up a harsher-edged array of shouts ’n’ yells ’n’ sneers. And, accordingly, their heavy yet rockin’ backbone tends to branch out into a more aggressive array of pounding basslines, erratic flurries of hammering drum fills, and thicker, nastier guitars - where the occasional dual guitar runs are more like NWOBHM via Eyehategod (if that makes any sense) than any 70’s-esque rock ’n’ roll throwbacks. I don’t know, there’s probably a small hint of some of that kinda shit in there, too (check out some of the more fuzzed out/less noisy bursts lead playing during the seven-minute "Architect"), but… it’s all just a little nastier and more over the top here, you know? Not that they’re really trying to rewrite the book on this particular niche or anything like that, ’cause they’re not, but… the overall sense of energy definitely does the trick for me, and keeps things moving along at a strong pace that carries the listen well and leaves you feeling content when all is said and done. Good stuff. That’s all there is to it.
