Mutoid Man - War Moans

Mutoid Man are a band who've had one of the most exciting upwards trajectories in recent years. Something of a supergroup there is a sort undeniable magic behind this group and their latest record War Moans. The raw energy behind the music and the rock and roll magic expressed in the soaring vocals, ripping solos and high power riffs is always exciting. A record that captures the magic of rock and roll but isn't afraid to work in some sillier moments, Mutoid Man have gone above and beyond with this release. 

War Moans is the sort of record that can't help but to be fun. As much as Mutoid Man are a group who are unafraid to break rules and push boundaries with their riffs they are also a band who give the people what they want, and what they want is bouncy fuckin' riffs. Mutoid Man have captured the inherent power of the genre, fusing a desire to grow beyond with the youthful exuberance that made so many of us fall in love with the genre in the first place. There is a strange intensity to War Moans with its schizophrenic riffs and hyper speed fills. The technical skill on display here is insane and can't help but to impress.

One of the most addictive rock records of the last few years it's hard not to fall in love with what Mutoid Man have done here. They play with a variety of tempos, guitar styles, sonic approaches and the vocals can't help but to navigate all over the spectrum. War Moans is able to find a unique sweet spot, its just mind expanding enough as to be edgy, but not so much that it gets cerebral. It's poppy enough to remain exciting, but not so much that it gets repetitive. This can't help but be the future of rock and roll.
