specific brand of sugar-rush rock was a critical darling (for most, anyway
) during the reign of their ear-smashing debut Treats
. Can they do it again?
Guitarist-producer Derek Miller and singer Alexis Krauss have just put the finishing touches on their sophomore LP Reign Of Terror
(a much more appropriate title IMO), and first single "Born To Lose" is more of the same-- loud and hard guitars peppered with Krauss on top. However, the clarity of Krauss's lyrics, detailed drum programming, and brief guitar coda in the middle all hint at some progressive movements for the band.
Reign Of Terror
is out in February.
