Directly in the Path of Organized Ignorance
by Karla Ash
Basic, in-your-face garage-stomping hard rock with enough chainsaw guitars and crashing drums to crack bedroom windows, the Los Angeles band 2ND make simple statements with the power of a 747. This is straightforward, unpretentious underground punk metal with the melodic accessibility of grunge. The duo of Jason Morse and Dave Foreman generate heat and hooks like a young Nirvana without Kurt Cobain’s stream-of-consciousness poetics and Beatles pop sensibilities. The first cut, “Heavy Heavy Metal,” summarizes 2ND’s philosophy - crank up the amps, spit out the bile, and bang the drums.
