Painmuseum: You Have The Right To Remain Violent

The Mighty Metal Mike Chlasciak and his bringers of the mayhem Painmuseum have returned with an EP of material to whet the palette for Metal just a little more. The EP is a nice treat for fans of the shredder who are waiting for another full-length album from the band but yet I was a bit surprised that there was only one new tune included on this disk. "Scars In Black" is a thriller of a Metal track with a pounding display by drummer Bobby Jarzombek along with the six string insanity that is Metal Mike at his best. Given the CD includes three previously released tracks from "Metal For Life", this CD might have only a small amount of appeal to existing fans of the band and quite personally I think Mike should have waited a little before releasing this on the world. He does give you the "Speak The Name" video and a bunch of bonus features but those implements would be best suited for a DVD release than on a CD. The band is also comprised of Tim Clayborne (Hatred) and Steve DiGiorgio (Sadus, Testament) and considering the busy touring and recording schedule it is most probably the reasoning behind limited material from this excellent Pure Metal outfit. Jarzombek and Mike now are part of Sebastian Bach's band and have worked extensively with Rob Halford and at last mention would be working on the Metal God's third album.

This is a solid effort but I owned most of the songs already so only casually recommend this. If you don't own Metal For Life do yourself a favor and grab it since you are going to be thrown to the floor with some of the performances on it. Buy this as a treat while you wait for more.
