Poison Idea - Confuse & Conquer
Regular price £10.00
Legacy acts putting out new albums is de rigueur now, but an album that sounds fresh and exciting? That’s rare. Surgical Steel and At War With Reality are ultimately just a couple of decent melodic death metal records [Well, one of them is only decent- ed.]; serviceable, but nothing to get overly excited about. There’s a stark contrast between material which pushes a band along and which pushes a band forward. Portland hardcore punk lifers Poison Idea will never get tagged as “progressive” in any way, but new LP Confuse & Conquer maintains their signature sound without getting bogged down by stale genre tropes.
