 Junk Dealers  - Pipe Dream
review
'Junk Dealers' is a crossover band from Halifax who balanced in industrial ,metal ,hip hop,funk metal even some stoner rock flavour ! the biggest outcome/score with all these music genres from them is that 'Pipe Dream' have solid results ,because is direct and and simle not a soup expeririment.In the stoner rock music genre the band influenced by Fu Manchu, Sleep, Karma To Burn, and Clutch, Slo-Burn and o course Kyuss , from Hardcore Unsane, Biohazard and Helmet , on trip hop / big-beat dance style Red Snapper and DJ Shadow ! all these music textures is hardly to detect a once but it's easy to let Junk Dealers to pull you in their own state!
'Religion ' is a song based on hip hop roots , leading the song the lyrics quickly convering to more industrial structure , personally i think is monotonic for intro track but have a simplicity quicly know what comes later.
'Bad Vibrations ' after a techno/industrial based intro moves to industrial paths of Prong , the ironic abrasive voice performance of 'Haydn Wilcox' that sometimes reminds 'Chuck Mosley' the first singer of 'Faith No More' maybe overshadowed the excelent the rythm and beat parts but the idea of the band is based on lyrics more in the first song after moves into more industial rock styles.
'Goverment Leaders' is the pick of the record , a simple great alternative/industrial riffage build with a perfect funky bass in the vein of Faith No More.
Songs like 'Hometown Blues' and 'The Chain of Command' i find some mid eightes influences like the latest album of 'Tad' Infared Riding Hood' & 'Infaler' and from 'Ministry' albums in this period with the addition of some groovyness.
'Cruel' finally let out some stoner/heavy rock comes out fans of first Kyuss album Wrench will highly appreciate these tunes.
'Pipe Dream' straight industrial rock recorded at Mutiny Studios, Bradford and produced by James Atkinson (Gentlemans Pistols) and (At Her Majesty's Pleasure) so maybe influenced the band someway with the stoner doom sound. 'Junk Dealers' for fans of Godflesh ,Prong ,Melvins,Unsane,go down listen and vote them!
