Album Of The Day-Raging Speedhorn-"How The Great Have Fallen" (2005)

The Album Of The Day is "How The Great Have Fallen" by Raging Speedhorn.


It's quite a declaration that Raging Speedhorn singer Frank Regan states on the group's press release for the band's third release overall, How the Great Have Fallen. "If we weren't in Raging Speedhorn, we'd all be dead, in jail or blowing up buildings for a living." That said, you'd expect the group's 2005 release (its first to be issued in America) to be intense, heavy, and brutal. Check, check, and double check. If Black Sabbath specialized in speedier tempos, and had a hardcore barker out in front instead of Ozzy, you'd be close to the sound that Raging Speedhorn specializes in. The U.K. group has built quite a following in its native land, and as evidenced throughout How the Great Have Fallen, Raging Speedhorn should have no problem winning over the U.S. Headbanger's Ball set. The angst and venom doesn't let up through the album's ten tracks, especially with such song titles as "A Different Shade of Shit," "How Much Can a Man Take," "Fuck You Pay Me" (a famous line from Martin Scorsese's gangster classic Goodfellas), and "Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down." If you continuously wake up on the wrong side of the bed, How the Great Have Fallen is the album for you. (Greg Prato, AMG)
