Anyway, here's Hot Coffin, a band from Milwaukee, US. I know very little about this band, mainly because while writing this, I got myself another beer and I'm getting more drunk by the paragraph. I'm also way too energized by this awesome blend of noise rock and punk rock to focus on reading anything about the history of the band. Members have had some experiences in several bands before.
The album opens with 'Whistle, Hawk, & Spit' and immediately I'm dragged in a vision about summer festivals and the raw intensity from noise rock and punk bands, even though this is probably the most post-hardcore related song on this album, it still is one of my favorites (I'm not really into post-hardcore, but don't tell anyone). From then on, we're on a massive wave of riffs, drums and rough vocals.
I can hear influences from Melvins, from Neurosis, from Bad Religion, from Sonic youth and even from Therapy?. But most of all, I can hear a bunch of rockers having the time of their lives. The album highlights a number of times, including the great songwriting 'Salt Away' and the mosher 'Hammer Throw'. But I also really dig the chaotic 'A Lesson In Sleep' and the closing track. I'm not going to mention the title of that last want. It would sound weird. Look it up and you'll know why I won't say ' I like...'
So yeah, buy this album, have a few beers, turn up the volume and let yourself go. After all, it's Saturday, the only day where you don't have to slave to society, family or other yapping 'obligations'. Have fun, get wasted and rock on...
