For those of you who aren’t familiar with The Shrine, the term “psychedelic violence rock ‘n roll” is by no means a pretentious exaggeration, because this is really the most apt way to describe the band’s music. The manner in which they fuse elements of classic rock ‘n roll, punk and heavy metal is the single biggest strength of their music. That’s where the term comes from, and each of the nine songs on here proves its validity.

In the form of “Primitive Blast”, The Shrine have come up with a record that will satiate a lot of music listeners across the board. Whether you’re skating through the streets of Los Angeles, or smoking a few joints at home, or simply ready to rock out, this album will provide you an excellent soundtrack for whatever activity you’re indulging in. It’s almost exactly like how Black Sabbath would sound if they infused a bit of punk into their sound, or like Black Flag with a touch of classic rock ‘n roll. Whichever way you look at it, The Shrine have delivered what could turn out to be the album of the year.
