Brick Bath: Rebuilt

The best parts of this album? The grinding anesthetizing buzz emanating from Eric Meyer's guitar and the built-like-a-medeival-church rhythm section of Scott Babel (drums) and Pete Stone (bass). Absolutely on par with the best moment of recent Cathedral and at times reaching the blackened grooves of Paranoid-era Sabbath. The worst parts? At times vocalist Cody Hubbard seems to be searching for his voice, swinging from something close to Layne Staley with strep throat to Rob Zombie with a cold. At other times it seems that Brick Bath is a band still searching for that perfect marriage between old and new schools. The good news? There are enough strong moments here to warrant your consideration as some time on the road and between this album and the next should help further solidify Brick Bath's sound. They're a tenacious bunch and this is a good glimpse of what they could be about. Probably not a future classic but not a straight-to-bargain-bin affair, either.
