This may be one of the best albums of 2011 already and I became fan instantly and unconditionally. If this Spanish/Portuguese sound like “Polkadot Cadaver” don’t sound familiar, Dog Fashion Disco should ring the bell. Actually, “Sex Offender” is their second album, their debut album, Purgatory Dance Party, was released in November, 2007. When Baltimore based Alt-Metal act Dog Fashion Disco came to an end in 2007, it wasn’t the end of front man Todd Smith, guitarist Jasan Stepp Guitar and drummer John Ensminger musical output, they just get sick of living the vagabond lifestyle that a touring metal band requires, so they decided to start a (more) studio band. And Polkadot Cadaver seems to be the perfect form to unleash their schizophrenic musical madness. “Sex Offender” is extremely colorful and intense, full of great songs.
Modern Metal sounds, exciting Industrial infusions, raw vocals and melodious, lyrical approaches, cutting edge riffs and nice harmonies, exciting synth and samplers are melting into one in a perfect musical flow and fabulous groove. “Sex Offender”, “Bloodsucker”, “Starlight Requiem”, “Stronger Than Weak”, “Cake And Eat It Too”, “Mongaloid”, “Forever And A Day” are all anthem-like songs. From System of a Down to Puscifer and from Marilyn Manson to Tool, Polkadot Cadaver incorporated everything what makes Metal now days rocks and came out with this incredibly intense and powerful material. “Sex Offender” definitively it’s a landmark, an album to refer and which for sure will inspire many others.
