Backwoods Payback

- I've been digging on this new Backwoods Payback album, Momantha (Small Stone Records) a great deal lately. Lead singer, Mike Cummings, is a real stand out. His voice cuts through a sea of mediocre vocalists who generally hide behind a borrowed snarl. Bringing to the table a raw yet well controlled set of pipes, Ol' Boy does not shy away from a strong melody. Mix that in with lots of hammering riffs that are all wound up in well written dirty jams, there is not a clunker in the bunch. I Highly recommend picking this one up. Hell get two, give one to a friend.
