This is a review of an album called "This is the album of a band called Adebisi Shank" by a band called Adebisi Shank

~ ~
So its been a little over a year and a bit since Adebisi Shank released "this is the E.P of a band called Adebisi Shank", since then they toured the E.P extensively through out Ireland, Mick and Lar released an E.P with Terrordactyl , Vin released Rocky IV Reckyrd in his guise as The Vinny Club, ventured into UK and mainland Europe with label mates Marvins Revolt, done a tour of Japan with Lite (who themselves are on tour in Ireland in October) and gained a very enthusiastic American fan.

Adebisi Shank - You Me

The album was produced by J. Robbins (Government Issue, Scream, Jawbox, Burning Airlines and Channels) in Magpie Cage studios in Baltimore, Maryland, the LP was mastered by TJ Lipple (Guitarist with Aloha) at Inner Ear studios in Washington DC.
First off i just want to say the album is addictive , clocking in at just over 23 minutes its goes by in what seems like half that time and with you hitting repeat to hear it again. the album doesn't have the visceral punch that the E.P. had, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing the album is a more cerebral beast then the E.P. with many of the tracks seemly flowing from one to the other, production wise every note is crisp and sharp and i cant find fault with it at all. Musically it's as terrifying as the E.P. Coming from all directions with unrelenting amazingness from all in the band. Again Adebisi Shank have made another record that defies a decent description and classification , its is a must have and they are a must see band.
