SPREADING THE DISEASE
KKK KENT MOB SERVE UP THEIR DELICIOUSLY FILTHY MEAT ‘N’ POTATOES METAL STEW
■ THERE’S NOTHING flash about Spreading The Disease.and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Sinking their infectious heavy metal roots deeper into the gritty, earthen bedrock laid down by outfits as pummellingly heavy as Pantera and Machine Head, this debut album picks up where 2016’s Viral EP left off. Mid-paced, chunky bludgeon is the order of the day on unapologetic bangers like Words Unspoken and Greed, but there’s a thrilling dynamism, too, evidenced in the far trippier Dischord and acoustic-inflected Can’t Let Go. Even the flashes of nu-metal machismo seeping through the brilliantly-terribly-titled Brexit Wounds, and slamming closer Last Goodbye doesn’t sap their momentum. Consider these dudes a disease you’ll want to catch. DOWNLOAD: Greed. FOR FANS OF: Pantera, Machine Head.
