Words Are Kerosene
The second release from Egodog, 'Words Are Kerosene', packs a powerful, sometimes funky punch into a five-song EP. Leading off with the Zombie-esque 'Bad Guy', vocalist Tony Oros explores his demons with poetic poigniancy over a heavy/techno guitar groove supplied by guitarist Mike McManus. The hooks keep coming in tracks like 'Testify' and 'Trigger', with new Ego-rhythm section Joe Higgins (drums) and Damian Pampena (bass) particularly shining on the latter. 'Kerosene' has enough meat to keep the mosh-pit regulars happy, while still supplying the melodic and lyrical content to make the songs memorable.
