Catching the Steve Austin-helmed act at a period where they synthesized early WILLPOWER experimental Am Rep and indie space rock influences with CBGB’s rage, welding it to RATT-style REACH THE SKY balladry (just kidding)…the early traces of the violent, dissonant metal and hard rock act they have become pre Axis of Eden but post Temple of the Morning Star‘s satanic themed Manson trip out. The Sadness Will Prevail 2xLP is grind, noise, ambient, straight up rock n roll. All that. Some tinkly piano as well. More a triumph of will over pain, a love letter to the blues always being a truest musical form that transcends in the end.
