F.K.U. 1981 Album review



Album review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio





What can I say about this ungodly treat of an album by F.K.U.  Absolutely badass and right up my alley. This is splatter thrash at its finest. This group is based on horror movie themes because, of course, we all know that horror and metal just go together. Their latest album, 1981, is set for release on November 24th via Despotz Records.  The theme of the album is obviously 1981- the ultimate year for the slasher movie genre.


Originally F.K.U. formed in 1987, disbanded and reformed in 1997. In 1998, a 20 song demo Beware of the Evil Underwear resulted in the full album release Metal Moshing Mad.  They have played at the Sweden Rock Festival, Metaltown, Getaway Rock Festival, and House of Metal. 2004 saw the release of Sometimes They Come Back to Mosh and 2013’s Rise of the Mosh Mongers (Napalm Records). I've listened to multiple songs from the above albums and loved them.


 I  melted at the first syllables uttered on the song “1981.”  Larry Lethal’s amazing vocal work remind me of Overkill Bobby Ellsworth.  “Nightmares in a Damaged Brain" with its unforgiving guitar and bass riffs courtesy of Pete Stooaahl and Pat Sat, is a mosh pit ready anthem. Throw in fake blood for added effect. The essential abrasiveness of “Hell Night" and “Corpse Mania" are dark demonic fun.


Pummeling drum assaults by Unspeakable Emp will have your fists raging along. Other songs that are featured give credit to their respective slasher flicks- “Halloween II",  “Evil Dead" and “The Funhouse.”


F.K.U. successfully capture their vision of combining thrash and horror. I think even George Romero (RIP) would mosh to this.
