I used to partake in something called Mischief Night. Traditionally held each year around Halloween, it entailed hooligans breaking curfew and getting into trouble with the law and with their parents. The night usually came with its own soundtrack, and when I hear those songs today, the memories come rushing back. In the third grade (they start ’em young back East), the soundtrack was Ted Nugent and Kiss. In junior high, it was the angsty ruminations of hardcore-punk bands like Black Flag, Bad Religion, and Jody Foster’s Army. An old friend of mine lamented recently that punk had gone flaccid, whiny, and generic. For the most part, she’s right. I weep for the kid who has to TP a house to Green Day. But thankfully, there’s hope. Say howdy to New Orleans foursome Arson Anthem, an inbred punk-metal supergroup consisting of former Pantera and Down vocalist Phil H. Anselmo (as producer and guitarist here), Ponykiller bassist Collin Yeo, Eyehategod vocalist Mike IX Williams, and the inimitable Hank Williams III on drums. These boys have cross-pollinated in bands and studio sessions so often they could be called kissing metal cousins. Recorded and engineered by Hank III at his Haunted Ranch studio in Nashville, Insecurity Notoriety isn’t gravy-and sweet-tea drenched Southern-steel hair metal. It’s straight-up, in-your-face, time-warp punk that’ll make sinners out of saints and raise the hardcore dead no matter what time of year it’s played. Seventeen songs, 30 minutes — do the math.
