Love Is In The Missile
After a pair of EPs, Atomsmash drops its debut full-length. The salaciously titled Love Is in the Missile is a collection of punch-the-clock riff-rock that takes more than a few cues from Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and, of course, the mighty Nickelback. In terms of Bringing the Rawk, the Miami quintet has many of its post-grunge peers beat because it steers clear of the sappy-balladry trend that has gradually infected the genre since the rise of Saliva. Note to exotic dancers looking for new music: The tracks "Do Her Wrong," "Last Call" and "Mile High Love" are perfect for the pole.
