Very self explanitory. I hear the term "Rock N' Roll Revival" thrown around constantly, and the EODM have been billed as such. Let me say that I love Kyuss and Queens, but I caught these guys on Conan... and it might as well have been the White Stripes with a little more talent. I don't remeber much about the music, I remeber more a general confusion. I remeber hearing that Josh Homme hates metal which uhm, doesn't make sense because Queens/Kyuss could get pretty heavy. But maybe he speaks in the purist/satan worship/death metal/low grunting/speed metal. So right off the bat, I didn't expect a death metal album. Thought I do think it would be hilarious if The Eagles of Death Metal were a death metal supergroup, like the death metal equivilant of the Eagles. Or perhaps a death metal tribute to the eagles. Anyhoo, the confusion. First of all, I thought Josh Homme had become a Hot Topic kid with a handlebar moustache. But he was actually behind the kit. Vocals/guitar were by a fellow by the name of Jesse Hughes. And Josh Homme is using the alias, Carlo Von Sexron. The performance seemed catchy, but stupid catchy. Like "Oh baby, yeah yeah" catchy. Did I forget to mention, no bassist. Yep, jumping on that bandwagon. Bassists, who needs 'em... It wasn't until really watching that performance that I realized how important we are. It was all ultra hollow sounding and the guitar and the drums seemed to be two totally different things going at once, no unity between anything. But then again, WE know how important we are... So what's the verdict? Because if the only Queens song I heard was "Go with the Flow" I'd write them off as a pop rock group as well.
