If one was to ask whether or not thrash metal can be funny and still be taken seriously, the first thing I’d reach for would be my copy of “Back To The Noose”, the rather hard hitting yet obviously tongue-in-cheek tale of pirates on the high seas. What is presented here is a very catchy, very brutal, and rather impressive mishmash of death/thrash, crust and folk inspired music that, while gimmicky as they come, is a load of fun. While every album this band has put out listens like a long musical story, this time around there is an actual concept at play here, which is a satirical play on the popular Hollywood pirate that is reinterpreted with the crass, buffoonish mannerisms of a modern day biker gang.The band’s desired theatrical atmosphere is definitely lacking in subtlety, as the shorter instrumental exchanges with the attitude drenched thrashers has taken on an almost power metal character at times. Right from the onset of “Hoist The Sail” familiar images of folksy guitars and shimmering seas give way to a powerful metallic overture that is all but perfectly in line with the practices of epic bands from Ensiferum to Helloween, albeit in a much less complicated fashion. After the segue into the first full length song “Scurvy Back” things actually go a step further into the larger than life, melodic realm of power metal tinged thrash with a continued folk presence that is somewhat uncharacteristic of the band if their debut has anything to say on the matter.The further things move along, the more the amount of growing this band did during their 3 year studio hiatus becomes obvious. The catchier, slightly 80s infused thrasher “Rounds Of Rum” shows a further extension of the band’s melodic musical material venturing outside of their instrumental ditties, while there’s a good helping of nastily performed Slayer worship in “Back To The Noose” and the somewhat humorous yet house demolishing “It Came From The Deep”. The band seems quite apt at following the lead of S.O.D. and Nuclear Assault and meshing their punk influenced shorter works with a strong D-beat influence on the quickies “We Sunk Your Battle Ship” and “Whirlpit”. And as before, insane captain Patrick Henry is throwing every sort of harsh vocal style along with the kitchen sink at every turn between the frequent gang choruses, even occasionally throwing in what sounds like grind vocals in a few spots.In this day and age of style splicing and melding, my response to this rather comical grab-bag of archaic and modern methods is, why not. This is the sort of album that can be admired for its rather impressive mixture of riff assaults, blast beats, acoustic tunes and even some occasional Polynesian steel drum music, yet also be laughed at without the slightest hint of schizophrenia. Underscoring this is the obviously goofy “Rime Of The Haggard Mariner” with its goofy old man narration and obvious Billy Milano emulations, followed by “Cruise Ship Terror”, probably the band’s best and most well known homage to the extreme thrashers of the late 80s. It might be having your cake and eating it too, but this is just too vicious and too hilarious to hate, and it definitely deserves all the attention it has received and then some.
