When good riffs turn very, very bad: Oh, the shame. Clovenhoof instinctively understands that there are only so many riffs in the world, so why not appropriate the best ones, lock 'em up for a while to teach 'em who's boss, then unleash 'em in a suitably remade/remodeled fashion. Here, on this exceedingly entertaining set, our heroines transmogrify "Wild Thing" into a Melvins dirge ("Cobre Verde"), get all glammy 'n' sticky with some Sweet-meets-Sabbath crunch ("Murky Blue"), and, in a masterstroke, reclaim the Nuge's misogynistic "Stranglehold" and turn the dang thing on its head in an echoey orgy of squalling femme-noise ("Sinking"). And don't miss the title cut, a sludge-riffer par excellence, spiced by a subtly Burundi-flavored rhythm and more than a hint of S&M delights lurking in the wings. Tie me up, tie me down, ladies!
