Aggression, hooks, riffs ….sorta sounds like what you would get from a bar band, no? Cancer Bats, while being fairly new, are better than your average bar band. They turn it up a notch while still dishing out their own fusion of punk and metal. Lead singer Liam Cormier's screams become more and more primal as the band goes on. This is no holds barred kind of stuff. The band has swagger and confidence to burn on this their third album. Showing their sense of humour, the Toronto rock band even tears the cover off a raucous version of "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys.
There are 14 tracks on the album, which normally I would not complain about, but with all the songs on the album leaving you feeling like you are absorbing serious body shots it got to be a little much by the end. Fans will not have a problem with that, though.
