||Including excerpts from their new album "Global
Village Idiot," this three song promo shows what Sucker[p]unch
is all about. Influences for this band included Faith No More, Black
Sabbath, Helmet and the Rollins Band. When I first popped this disk
in my CD player the first band I thought of was the Rollins Band.
Their sound is pretty good, and the productions is good as well. This
disk has three tracks and the fourteen and a half minutes of music
to give you a walk on the bands crazy side. Calling their music "Spooky
Weirdcore," Sucker[p]unch ads their love of sick humor, unpredictability,
and dark and heavy riffs to create an approach that is truly their
own. None of the tracks on the disk were bad songs, but the only one
that I enjoyed was "I Loathe You." All, I can say that I
wasn't totally thrilled with this CD, but the way that they create
their music makes me want to at least check out the rest of the songs
on this disk. It's not that Sucker[p]unch is a bad band, it's just
that I might need a little more to understand this band.
