Check Your People

Now, after battling for years to extricate themselves, the 'set return to the indie-punk trenches with this long-overdue third album. And the blistering Check Your People definitely makes up for lost time. Heavier and more crushing than a safe dropped on your foot, these 13 cuts are packed wall-to-wall with walloping drums, chugging and snarling Sabbath-sludge guitars and Rey Oropeza's spleen-venting, eardrum-busting bellow. Combined, they make all the Korns and Bizkit boys look like the sissypants trendies they are. Bonus points for their motivational lyrics, which focus not on nookie and breaking stuff, but on unity and building a better system. They may have been down, but they're a long way from out.
