The Shrine – Rare Breed


The Shrine – Rare Breed
Century Media – 2015
Rock, Punk, Hard, Stoner
Rated: ***

The Shrine operates somewhere on the cutting line between Black Flag and Black Sabbath. It’s punky and hardcore edge definitely goes big the way of the skateboard rock. While the druggy and heavy side has you thinking about laying down and shooting up. But we must concede, it’s the throbbing, the hard stomping, the barrel gunning edge of the Rare Breed album that convinces the most. Cause this is, without any doubt, a punk album. Stiffy, balls out, party hard punk! And yes, they do incorporate some stoner and hard rock along the way, but that’s not what this album is all about. It’s about enjoying a way too high ramp for your ability while being way to high and flattening your nose while trying to go down, laughing hard about all the blood and then jump on the board again. And on those tracks that display their hefty stoner side the best; they still retain that violent side. The Shrine is definitely a rare breed, one of those monsters created only once, and not even considered for mass production. A high-powered mutant…
