Powerman 5000 – Album Review – New Wave
An Onslaught of Heavy Music
October of 2017 has seen the launch of Powerman 5000’s latest release, New Wave and the onslaught of heavy grooves has hit the airwaves with a vengeance. As with every Powerman 5000 recording, the style of this album has evolved, while still holding onto the heavy fusion of punk, rap and metal that have been the roots of the band since they released their debut in 1994. Formed in Boston decades ago, Powerman 5000 took the local scene by storm, opting to deviate from the grunge scene of the early 90’s and do something different. That gamble paid off in a big way and Powerman 5000 has been pounding out terrific heavy music ever since. They have shared the stage with countless industry giants, including such iconic artists as Marilyn Manson, Korn and KISS, as well as garnering a spot on the bill of the first ever OZZFEST.
New Wave is the eleventh official release from the group. It features ten powerhouse tunes, including the blistering “Thank God,” “Footsteps” and “Voices” as well as the feature tracks, “David Fucking Bowie” and “Cult Leader” with accompanying videos. Each member of Powerman 5000 brings their own hard hitting style to every track on this album. The Powerman 5000 lineup consists of founder and vocalist Spider One, guitarists Ty Oliver and Ryan Hernandez, drummer DJ Rattan and bassist Murv Douglas. Be sure to check out Powerman 5000’s live show as they tour in support of their album.
