Bates Motel - Tales of Ordinary Madness (Tomcat) 2002
I bought this CD because
I read the following review:
I had also read that Jeff Waters had written a couple of songs on this CD. Well, the above review is 100% false. First of all this isn't even close to thrash. Rather Bates Motel is punky heavy metal that reminds me a bit of the Ramones at times. Jeff Waters did have a hand in writing on this CD, but he doesn't write in the classic Annihilator style as might be expected. Second, the songs here are not even close to being "100 MPH." Rather most of the songs are of the mid-paced variety. Not that there is anything wrong with this. Actually I quite enjoyed this disc, but I must admit I was disappointed at first because this was so far removed from what I was expecting. About the only thing the above review got correct was that this was a release in Canada only.
