Superjoint Ritual - Use Once and Destroy

Best Metal Album

The following was originally published in our Review section. 

Review by Dr Fever

As you may or may not know, Philip Anselmo stays busy. He has a plethora of side projects to go along with that whole Pantera thing. Down is his most well known project, but it won’t be long before Superjoint Ritual is challenging for that crown. 

When anger and alcohol are your muse one band just isn’t enough. With his latest ‘side offering’, Anselmo and his bandmates deliver a brutally heavy album..but those words don’t do it justice. I’m not sure I can accurately describe just how amazingly brutal and beautifully heavy this album is within the context of this review. You’d just have to listen too it for yourself. 

The best way I can describe this album is this: Imagine an entire album full of songs cut from the same mold as, say; “f***ing Hostile”, “Strength Beyond Strength”, and “Sandblast Your Skin”. Then, add a bigger dose than usual of drugs and alcohol and you’ll get the idea.  Don’t let the name of the band fool you, this isn’t some sludgy stoner rock. This is balls to the wall brutality.

An amazing aspect of this album that cannot go overlooked is who the bass player for Superjoint Ritual is. Hank Williams the 3rd. Yep, Hank 3. Ol Bocephus’ son lays down the thrash. Don’t write him off though...Hank 3 may be classified as “alt-country” by a lot of people, but this guy is just as comfortable with Slayer and The Misfits as he his with the music of his daddy and his granddaddy. I admit, this was a major drawing point for me. Well, that and I worship at the alter of Phil Anselmo. 

Anyway, if you haven’t figured out by now that you need to own this album then go back, read this again, and then GO BUY THE DAMN ALBUM!
