From reading Hunting Lodge's biography, I get this "We do want we want to, no
exceptions" feel, reminiscent of what we saw during the punk rock era, and this
no nonsense attitude is shown in the way they batter their instruments to make a
chaotic and yet a consistently structured and unique sound.
If I could
compare Hunting Lodge's sound to another band I would struggle, so instead, if
you were to take a dose of The Exploited, throw in some of The Locust and top it
off with a bit of Fantomas, the chance is you still wouldn't be anywhere near to
the sound of Hunting Lodge but thatís about as close as I can manage.
lack of melody is quite an obvious thing throughout this album, In many cases
this would be a bad thing however for Hunting Lodge this just adds to the
intriguing sound that they aim to create.
I would suggest Energy Czar is
an album for those of us out there, who can go into something completely open
minded, Hunting Lodge bring a refreshing and riot inducing sound that needs to
listened to with ears wide open.
