The dog days being that time in high summer when drooling mutts are most likely to have a heavy dose of the mad death. Rabies that is. Goatsnake spent last August in an LA studio sweating it out and this five-track mini-album is the result. It's pretty diseased itself. Maybe they caught a dose. Judging from photos they certainly seem to dislike the look of bath water.



. Yuk. Free's 'Heartbreaker' is also given a righteous pummelling.



Much of this sounds like a hammer smashing into the radiator grill of a runaway monster truck. Nothing wrong with that - in these days of the mostly rubbish heavy metal renaissance the Goatsnake (their vibe's ugly, believe me, I've seen the T-shirt) is waiting in the bottom of your motorcycle boot. Ready to bite back.
