Album Review: Head Like A Hole - Blood Will Out

Tuesday 19th July, 2011 9:10AM

If there is one lesson that you can learn from a band like Head Like A Hole (his mates call him HLAH) it is that solid Kiwi rock never dies. It just gets uglier, dirtier, and more prone to expletive laden outbursts. In 2009 they released The Devil Makes Work For Idle Hands. Forget any notions that it was a fluke, and the sheer belly-fire that the band brought out then is still present. You can hear it all over Blood Will Out, their brand new eighth album. Just as the name implies, Blood Will Out is a promise. It promises violence, malevolence, and a complete disregard for conventional wisdom. In that regard Blood Will Out is a promise well kept. HLAH deliver a fistful of abrasive scum rock the likes of which have been rarely seen since the early nineties. Raw, twisted songs in the vein of White Zombie and Butthole Surfers is their specialty and they are unlikely to be beaten at their own game.
