Speedealer: Second Sight (2002)

Vanguard Party 2.1 (October 2002)

Ever played Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1? Well, this band was on the soundtrack. They did a couple of songs that got run together to give you enough time to skate.

Speedealer works for their keep. On the road an average of 300 days each year, they are every bit as good live as they are on this record, the bands fourth. Fucking intense as ever only this time the screaming is diminished and they sound like Metallica should.

If you have ever heard Speedealer this record is nothing like the other three and takes a great deal from the production of former “Metallicat” Jason Newsted. He may have been embarrassed by the action of the crybabies, but he seems as sure as ever that they had the right idea as too what metal should be. The album captures Speedealer in the catchiest moments of Metallica, err umm, their glory.

These guys have put out four albums and its time the world realizes what’s up. Look for a free sticker around. If you ask “The_Uncle_Myke” for one he’ll give it to you, he has a stack of them. Hell he likes them almost like he likes his Motorhead.
