Album Review: Strapping Young Lad’s “Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing”

Heavy as a really heavy thing eh? They should have called it mottled as a really mottled thing. Heavy does not describe this album. Instead it’s blotchy, diverse, at times coherent and treble-full, and at others disjunctive and noxious. The album has riffs galore, but none that stick out in my mind. The lyrics are satirically funny, but do not really stick in my mind either. If I want to hear some brutal music, I don’t put these guys in. If I want to give myself a headache, I play the first song from this album.
