Twelve More Observations On Healthy Living
From the great city of Chicago, returning to the limelight after their widely acclaimed debut LP, are none other than the almighty MAN-EATERS. Twelve More Observations on Healthy Living kicks right back into the 70's-inspired hard rock and proto-punk/metal hooks delivered on their debut. Much like the great Annihilation Time, our friends in Man-Eaters have really come into their own on this second album - applying the energy and chops built up from their hardcore days in Cülo into a heavier, louder, and pummeling hard rock equivalent. This is one for the beer drinkers and hell raisers, for the punks and metalheads - a damn fine rock'n'roll album that's fast, loose, and ready to be cranked LOUD!
Gentle Ballads For The Simple Soul
***From the same Chicago freaks that brought you TARANTÜLA, CÜLO, and BLEEDING GUMS, comes the debut album from MAN-EATERS. Gentle Ballads for the Simple Soul sits at the perfect crossroads of ugly '81 LA punk/HC (think The Decline or Hell Comes to Your House) and glammy mid-70's American hard rock. We're talking high quality stuff like the first albums from Kiss or Bang! Man-Eaters combine the precision and drive of golden era US hardcore/punk with the fluid riffing and driving rhythms of '70s hard rock, perhaps bordering on NWOBHM territory as well. Like a sonic shot of Malört, Man-Eaters' rugged debut roars out of the gate and sits heavier with each spin. Packaged with heavyweight 24pt. jacket featuring incredible full color original artwork from Man-Eaters' own DRGFACE and an 11"x17" color poster.
