Artist: Dredknot (http://dredknot.iwarp.com)
Title: Dredknot
Label: Kenco Enterprises
Genre: Metal

After listening to selections from my fellow Texans, "Dredknot," let me impart that I was immediately overcome with the distinct desire to go out into the woods at exactly 3 minutes after midnight and kill something with a Lone Star-studded machete. This desire is probably best compared to what werewolves feel at the first light of the silvery moon.

Such impressionable selections from the 5-song EP debut consist of; "Sick and Tired," "Vicious Cycle," "Justice," "Insane," and "Sympathy for Deceit (S4D)."

Not since my review of the "Burn Witch Burn" project on Razler Records, have I witnessed firsthand, such raw intense animalistic purging, giving further credence to the ready availability of soundtracks appropriate for such horror movies as, "What Lies Beneath" or "Vampires."

Now, in the interest of bestowing upon you a bit of colorful Texas history, let me say that some people in the great Lone Star state like to, on occasion, find themselves riding a horse through their hometown butt-ass naked (some people say "buck"-ass), when they need to expunge a cause, while daring the cops to chase them or, even worse, frisk them when they are caught (not all, but some).

As a former police officer, I actually witnessed this ugly sordid event and believe me...it's *not* a pretty picture by any standard).

But, "Dredknot," appears to be a whole new breed of Texas cowboy, er, I mean, musician whose soundtrack would really fit best on one of my favorite new television shows, "Wolf Lake."

Alternatively, the members of "Dredknot" don't appear to be the best kinds of boys a girl ought to bring home to mother (at least, not the girls I know), with their vocalese transcending from what is best described as guttural undertones to downright blatant overtones of feverishly-pitched wails.

In fact, to put it succinctly, at one point, "Dredknot" just about scared the hell out of me. I could tell because of the sudden elevation of hair that appeared on the back of my neck that I didn't even know was there previously.

Then, contributing to the fear, was that certain feeling you get in both ears when you have the sudden premonition that something is awry, and that same something is about to reach out and touch you, but it definitely ain't AT&T.

In fact, while listening, the "Dredknot" CD almost reminded me of the week of nights in the summer of 1973 that I spent shivering from fear under a winter blanket at the risk of possible heat exhaustion after reviewing "The Exorcist" for the first time.

Oh, to discover that "Dredknot" is, after all is said and done, ironically, a group of nice Catholic boys who utter no less than 10 "Hail Mary's" on any given weekday and regularly attend Sunday Mass. Oh, to discover such indeed.

So, should you find yourself 'spellbound' within the sounds on the "Dredknot" CD, just keep telling yourself..."it's only a movie... it's only a movie...it's only..."
