Best From… Snakeskyn Whiskey – Payments Made In Madness
This review should be published a few months ago, big thanks to Snakeskyn Whiskey for patience, 🙂
Snakeskyn Whiskey is a new-school Canadian band that proudly represents “heavier” music among the rest of “sweet taste” bands – that is the first reason why I like them. A some time ago, I made an interview with Justyn Vynn – the band’s guitarist.
You should also know that album was released in 2011, as their debut album.
Before you read anything below, remember that it is just my personal and subjective opinion, but I can ascertain that they are worth your attention especially if you liked classic heavy metal, 🙂
- In The Night
- Crazy Girl
- Children Of The Pain
- The Wicked
- If I Called You Up Tonight
- All The Angels Die
- Cold Night Fight
- Day To Remember
- Too Far To Stop
- Under The Knife
This time, I would like to start with the number-one song – “In The Night” and “All The Angels Die” that are my most favorite and the heaviest tracks on this album. I really love the perfectly fitted chorus into “In The Night”. As it comes to “All The Angels Die” the “melody” that is filled with the ass-kicking pure tones – everything what you can adore in heavy metal.
Now, let’s go directly to the next very vibrant song – “Under The Knife“. I recommend this because of an awesome guitar solo on it (from 3:38) – for certain one of the best from all new-school bands.
The another song that should be featured here is “If I Called You Up Tonight” that is some kind of “cherry on the cake” because it strongly contrasts with the style of another songs. This track is much warmer and calmer than the rest. I should add here that it was a great idea to keep the musical variety even with only one track. 🙂
To sum up, you should buy this album if you liked classic-heavy music, but now you also want to listen to something valuable and “fresher” than the 80s anthems or their covers.
