Review/ Dirtfedd: "The American Nightmare"

img  Tobias

They grow ‘em big, beefy and bonkers out in the Midwest – not just the football nose tackles but the sounds of their anger-management crockpot-metal bands. Dirtfedd are from Lincoln, NE, close enough to Slipknot’s Des Moines that they were bestowed an opening slot and Slipknot’s clown dude as their producer.

I-95 is littered with metal CDs I’ve flung out the window after identifying their creators as worshipful but unoriginal lunkheads trying to escape the machine shop, but this one’s a grabber, more melodically rounded than any brood of thrash-zoids in Metal Blade’s acre of inhumanely crowded chicken cages, but they’ve done their homework, too – “Salute” is mankind’s first double-jacking of GG Allin and Marilyn Manson. As fans, they would appear to be heavy consumers of jackboot-industrial, emo and Slipknot in equal measure, the vocals hence a cross of wifebeater-shirt bellowing, Fall Out Boy poppiness, and microphone-gargling.

As a bonus, Sabbath-ized southern-rocker “Blues” includes actual solos, which will make the heads of your Disturbed friends explode.
