Behold... This minor threat will be coming back

Eagles Of Death Metal
      "Come with us... And your leave your Earth behind..." Well, you know an ominous Chemicals' reference like that can only be a good thing. That is precisely so in what you get from California's Eagles of Death Metal, a quartet naturally born in resplendent swagger, but wholly deservedly so and impressively loaded to back it up and then some.

      Fully automatic with Jesse "The Devil" Hughes (vocals, guitar), David "Darlin' Dave" Catching (guitar), Brian "Big Hands (believe it!)" O'Conner (bass, vocals) and Gene "Teen Dream" Trautmann (drums, vocals), EODM unload an arsenal of throttling, pumping, liberations amidst an environment delectably set for them.

Eagles Of Death Metal      Good God y'all, with vintage Knack and George Thorogood flexing their visceral muscle in helping set the mood beforehand, Eagles' come out with their guns blaring in the marching, drilling acceleration of "Don't Speak (I Came To Make A Bang!). Wide awake from their countless slaps to the face accepted, the instantaneous smiles hold firm and bath in the trust of this reliable supplier.

      Shifting, shuffling and laying out the cards full-on, "Cherry Cola" shakes about Unit's heated intestines into a tasty, smooth pour as Jesse smiles wide while "Big Hands" O'Conner, threads his resonant bass. Meanwhile, "Darlin'" Dave" shakes his head in happy acceptance as "Teen Dream's" focused tight, yet full crashes alleviate all inside from this pent-up tension from an unleashed eternal fountain of youth.

      No reason to deny such nectar as "I Want You So Hard (Boy's Bad News)" runs recklessly raw into the embracing, flexing arms of "I Got A Feeling (Just Nineteen) as this buzz never abates.

      While Steely Dan is remotely far from EODM, 'Hey 19' would be a fitting cover. After all, it's not how old you are, it's how old you feel.
