The title gives the impression that this will be intolerable. Actually, it’s closer to Green Day; though some elements might be spouted at a different concentration. Like, it uses shards of Dead Soul Tribe. For those most parts, it’s a happy marriage between Punk and Metal. Then again, it sometimes finds itself in a bizarre love triangle where it’s caught three-waying with Power Pop. On the whole, it’s grungy and rough as hell, which is why disclaimers give indication that this medicine will not go down without tummy troubles.

Attempting to the lower its toxicity, “Run” and “Bittersweet” are balladic in nature. As for the rest, it’s not the easiest to swallow, but it’s ingestible.

Because their style is consistently lumpy from tip to toe, no real standouts will be found here. Still, their brand is fascinating and the back cover with credits on industrial-strength cleaners is rather clever. That aside, twelve tracks of this material might be too much. For the record, dilution is recommended, so the outflow is inline with the album’s acrimonious name. Just as is written on the label, Blissed’s Corrosive is noxious stuff, but in all sincerity it’s listenable when drunk in moderation.

    Joshua was a reviewer and interviewer here at Metal Express Radio. Iced Earth, Judas Priest, and Opeth are among his favorite bands, as well as Spock’s Beard and The Flower Kings. Once upon a time, the radio was a stopping point for him. From the day he discovered side-projects and Scandinavian imports, it all changed overnight. Outside of music, his passion is roller coasters. But when he's grounded and at home, he belong in the company of musical aficionados and technical shredders. He’ll get his jollies listening to Jazz Fusion when his favorites are in short supply. Still, if he had his druthers, give him a pretentious epic with a high-brow concept any day of the week (and slap on a guitar line with oodles of power chords for good measure).
