Performing an Exact Revenge
There’s a whole lotta soul in this edition of Demoltion – the reviews are on two “soulful” bands, Soul-Sick and Soulshake. Both are as far from Motown as you can get, so don’t confuse the word “soul” with, say, Martha & The Vandellas. These bands aren’t even in that realm!

In fact, Oceanside’s Soul-Sick is metal and hardcore at its heaviest and hardest. This new disc follows up their now-infamous demo, Still Sick & Suffering, that’s become a favorite in the underground scene. To give this new effort authenticity, the band opted for producer A.J. Novello of Leeway, and recruited guest appearances by Carly Coma and Kenneth Schalk.
Band members include The Mighty Caputo on vocals, James Barbella on guitars, Matt Wargas on bass, and Dan Komis on drums. No studio was listed, but Novello’s take-no-prisoners production style makes this about as heavy an album as anything that’s been released locally in years. Of course, Soul-Sick’s rabid Long Island fan base has propelled them to regional tours, so this album seems like a natural progression from all the roadwork they’ve been part of.

Highlights from the 13 tracks included here include “Blast Furnace,” which features Coma; the opener, “All Rise,” which blasts out of the speakers like an escaped lion; and “Red, White, Black, and Blue,” every bit as clever (and brutal) as its title.
