Heavy Metal junkies are likely to be blown away by Pestroy's latest album. This highly energetic and aggressive outfit deliver an aggressive assault from the very first track. Front man Tripwire shows his mettle, sounding as good as any hard lead vocalist. And Pestroy 's production doesn't let them down. They sound like well-drilled unit going into battle.
Each band member plays a strong part in the end result, but the individual energy levels of Shane on bass definitely deserve a mention. The others - Gump(Guitar), Jim(Guitar) and Dylan(Drums) - are all excellent in their own right."Re-Lie in Truth", "Proof", "Aim to Please" and "Obligation" are a few of the songs on this album that really stood out. The last two, remixes of "Proof" and "Counter Attack", are an interesting demonstration of how good a heavy metal remix can sound.Counter Attack is not just for the sk8er crew. If you enjoy listening to tight but hard sounding bands like Rage Against the Machine, then Counter Attack will be good for you too.

Although at times it sounds derivative and suffers from the usual challenge of translation from stage to CD, there is enough here to show that these guys have what it takes to make it within their chosen genre.- ZA@playPestroy may well be the best rock band in SA, generating a live buzz unrivalled since the Nudies' heyday, when every second babe wanted to gargle Arno's DNA.- Scam
