Superjoint are the one and only - the masters of their own reality, the dudes who are going to take the genre to a new level and who play by their own rules. After an extended period of bullshit, Mr Anselmo seems to have come through on top - ready once again to champion his unique brand of no bullshit heavy metal. Caught Up In The Gears Of Application is the sort of metal record that showcases the strongest sides of the genre and shows us that there is a bold future for a band who is putting out their first record in 13 years.
Phil is obviously the focal point of this record, his vocal delivery is stunning, showing off all sides of his range over powerful, grindy riffs that have a sense of forward momentum that is entirely their own. Caught Up In The Gears Of Application is a truly exciting record, an album that explores new sides of the Superjoint sound but also uses that old fashioned New Orleans groove. Superjoint has put together an album that pushes forward relentlessly and refuses to make compromises. Phil brazenly calls out his detractors and shows that no matter what madness surrounds him he will grab it by the motherfucking throat.
So feel the punch in the gut, get caught up in the punishing madness, suffocate on the bloody stump and let yourself suffer under the strain. Caught Up In The Gears Of Application is exactly what it needs to be, raw, vicious and unrelenting. Everything that has made the Phil Anselmo projects great over the past few years is represented here and it shows us that this man is one of the truly great forces in metal. This is a band who grind forward, now and forever. Ready to hit the road and make us suffer maybe it's these guys who will make America great again.
