Gorod - Freaks. This is not as bad as John and Greg have led us all to believe. It's not a standout release for these guys, and it's obvious it's kind of a gimmick release (they wrote and recorded it in a couple months to have something new to sell on a tour with some mediocre thrash bands), but for all that, it's not bad at all. They don't really nail the thrash sound, but that's okay.
Lies! Honestly, even with low expectations going in, I disliked it more than I expected to. I'm not sure I could even finish a single song. A cheap cash-in for the tour sounds about right; seems like very little effort was put into it.
Yeah, I am by far the most lenient here when it comes to rethrash, and I could not get into this one. Matt just has very strong band loyalty.
