Until now, Buffalo's hardest rockers (harder than even the Goo Goo Dolls) have been a better interview than band. Like (too) many of today's metalcore sensations, these five smartasses often infuse their titles with far more wit ("Apocalypse Now and Then") than their hammer-on heavy spasms. The cutesy Thin Lizzy Jr. act has, thankfully, ground to a halt on Dirty, a nastier, more focused collection of badassery. "Imitation Is the Sincerest Form of Battery" has the chops to back up the pun, as does the tightrope clang of "Rendez-Voodoo" and the no-nonsense strafing of "Depressionista." While frontman Keith Buckley's strong suit is not melody or clean singing, his psycho caterwauling makes a more than appropriate megaphone for the band's unhinged intensity. Like the man says, "We're sucking the blood from the necks of guitars."
