"Bike Messengers Aren't As Cool As They Think They Are"

These tracks total 15 minutes. It may sound like a crisp guitar drum duo, but while Mike Peterson plays drums, Luke Laplante is tearing up and down a keyboard with guitar amplification. The keys give themselves away when too many chords are being played at once, which has a cool sound. All in all, the album is loud and fast with a classic metal sound. Beware misogynistic lyrics in track 3.
Hella Fast Tracks: 1,2,4,6

1) (2:28) Percussion focused track with screaming guitar licks for breaths.

2) (1:51) Fast track as the drummer eggs on the rhythmic guitar.

3) (2:01) Stupid chanting for the first minute (the only lyric is Slap-a-Hoe or Slacker-hole). The second minute is frantic ripping. There is a little Slap-a-Hoe soundbyte at the end.

4) (1:51) Guitar focused track with some nice bars in the middle.

5) (2:19) Slower track with a bit more head-bang, nice breakdowns.

6) (1:34) Distorted keyboard tears across the drums

7) (3:49) Free-form percussion with sound-effects from a keyboard.
