Fireballs of Freedom
Total Fucking Blowout (Estrus Records)

By: Jeb Branin

YES!!! Finally another CD of dirty, gritty, ballsy rawk n' roll worthy of the momentum in the scene created by the likes of SPEEDEALER, ZEKE, and THE SUPERSUCKERS. This isn't some tired and half hearted attempt to combine punk with classic hard rock like most bands of this ilk, instead this is kick-out-the-jams-and-burn-the-house-down rock fury! Delivered with the passion of Ted Nugent on a big game hunt and the reckless abandon of a drunk driver in the Indianapolis 500. FIREBALLS OF FREEDOM have distanced themselves from the pack instantly. Sometimes the sound like MC5 reincarnated and other times they sound like they have been smoking NAZARETH albums in their crack pipe, but at no time do they lose their edge... and edge that is ragged, rusty and blood stained. Listening to this CD is like having Jack Nicholson lean into your face and scream, "You say you want punk rock? YOU CAN'T HANDLE PUNK ROCK!" and then smack you upside the head. On a scale of one to damn, this is a hell, yeah!
