Apocalypse Pow!

Smash The Superstition! CD EP

“This amusingly named band is some sort of metal/punk/dance fusion act. Imagine lots of screaming. Imagine power chords. Imagine strong, prominent drumming. Add to that weird keyboardy bits strewn about occasionally and you pretty much have the Apocalypse Pow! sound.

A perfect example is Smash the Superstition, which closes this EP. I guess this track is that electroclash stuff the kids talk about these days. you have keyboards, power chords, and people screaming “We came to dance, we came to dance”. It has a fast beat, and you could easily pogo to it. In fact, it’s energy is nigh unto infectious.

It is, however, the second track, It Makes Me Sexy When You Say That that stands out. This song takes the same elements (guitar, keyboards, screaming) and somehow ends up sounding just slightly different. This song is the unholy fusion of Black Sabbath and Yaz. Of course, all of the music on this EP san be described that way, but this track is the most fully realized of the 5 here.

The whole thing has great energy. The music really moves, and i bet these people are amazing in concert. Unfortunately, the EP only contains 13:39 worth of music. Barely enough to break a sweat…. Hopefully there will be more in the future.”
