I Got This Useless Energy

I'm almost willing to bet that Murdervan own a couple of records by Black Flag, and maybe "Total Recall" too, though even if all they have is a bunch of crap like Godsmack, that'd still be cool with me. Any rock this straight-up heavy that reeks of bad pot (but in a good way) yet still isn't so completely full of it own shit is worth keeping around for any number of reasons, not the least of which is, Murdervan sound friggin' great when played good and loud through a car stereo.

This isn't really stoner metal, though-- more like Leatherface meets Thin Lizzy (okay, so maybe that does describe stoner metal), and if someone asked me which Connecticut band I like the most out of the ones from right now, I'd probably say Murdervan, or at least until Tombstone Minds get their act together.

There's a new Murdervan EP that just came out a few months ago ("Jaundice"), plus if you do a YouTube search you'll find a whole bunch of cool Murdervan stuff, so get moving.

Glad I smell great-- I was worried about that...

Likewise, Kick To Kill has a damn good stench, also. Rock!!

Hey, sorry, but the mp3 files on this post are now listen-only (non-downloadable) files. You can go to the Murdervan MySpace page for info on how to get Murdervan stuff, like t-shirts and CDs.
