Alabama Thunderpussy
Fulton Hill (Relapse Records)

By: Mike SOS

The southern fried metal of Alabama Thunderpussy is back, with a new throat leading the sonic charge. Heavy trucker rock has always been ATP's strongsuit, and FULTON HILL is 12-tracks deep of gritty and driving dual guitar work backed by a thunderous rhythm section that kicks the blues out with an authoritative ass whooping. As for new singer Johnny Weills, let's just say that the band hasn't lost a step, as the gravel-throated projections and whiskey-soaked delivery of tracks like "Wage Slave" is a surefire indication that ATP hasn't lost an inch of footing by changing singers on the hike of Mount Rock. Hairy, hellacious, and heinous, ATP play rock 'n' roll the way that it's intended if you grew up in Virginia and were weaned on a steady diet of Skynyrd, Thin Lizzy, and Judas Priest. Horned hands salute; Alabama Thunderpussy is back with a vengeance.
