V/A- Killed By Meth Vol. 2 LP. Despite the homage to Killed by Death on the title and jacket, this is actually a compilation of current bands from the Rust Belt, which according to the map on the back of the jacket extends to Windsor, Ontario and Buffalo, down to Pittsburgh, goes across Ohio, over to Chicago, and encompasses parts of Indiana, Michigan and part of Wisconsin. There’s definitely a gloomy, post-industrial vibe going on in what these bands are throwin’ out there and they explore the similar doom n gloom, smog-drenched vibes of Akron / Cleveland area bands like the Electric Eels, the Bizarros, Devo, the Pagans, Rubber City Rebels, and Rocket From The Tombs. 14 bands in all and there’s really something for everyone here including new and unreleased songs from Bloody Show, Static Eyes, Gun, Eroders, Erik Nervous, Golden Trash, Beastman, City Slang, Flesh Rag, Radiations Risks, Protruders, The Drains, Manager and Real Regular. Cool band selection with a nice slice of the Rust Belt punk scene circa now with some sweet looking covert art by Ben Lyon. Recommended. Import from Canada.
