HERE COME THE INFIDELS
When a band moves on to singer #3, it generally comes to the point of “do or die” for them. For many bands, it’s the point where fans and the band alike realize that it’s over. For far too many, it’s proof that they’ve hung on too long. Certainly, that’s the first thought that comes to mind. Every once in awhile though, it works. While not perfect, Stuck Mojo’s latest release, HERE COME THE INFIDELS, does showcase that there’s still some gas in the tank for the band. While certainly not as strong as SOUTHERN BORN KILLERS (with vocalist Lord Nelson) or any of the classic Bonz led material, HERE COME THE INFIDELS introduces vocalist Robbie J. to the world. He’s strong as a performer, and brings fire to songs like “Rape Whistle”, while guitarist Rich Ward brings his signature sound to songs like “Worst Person On Earth”.
PITRIFF RATING - 75/100 - One of my favorite bands of all time, but HERE COME THE INFIDELS is decent but not overwhelmingly good to me. It’s one of those times that Spotify will be more than enough of a listening experience for me.
