Spider Fever - S/T LP - Blue Vinyl (/100)
What started out as purchasing a 7" out of loyalty to a Rocket From The Crypt related band has turned into buying records because I actually like them. After spinning the 1st 2 Spider Fever 7"s that were released, I was figuring that their debut full length would probably illicit a similar reaction in me. But this album is leaps and bounds ahead of anything the band has done up to this point. The songs on this are like the sharp end of a spear, just stabbing you in the face with full on fast punk rock. That isn't to say there aren't hooks and even the occasional melody tucked into the assault, but the one thing most will probably take from this record is that it's LOUD, and sometimes loud is just good.
I wouldn't want to listen to 10 bands that sounded like this, but I'll say that if you are going to listen to 1, having that 1 be Spider Fever is probably a good idea.
