Stuck Mojo have continued down their obstinate path of pure rap metal, at a time when no one dare do it. Their new album Southern Born Killers, is a perfect blend of huge, grinding riffs, gorgeous choruses, imposing grooves and delivered underneath a mixture of Lord Nelson's pissed off, old school, hip-hop flavor and Rich Ward's soulreplenishing croon. Rich's complex and extreme (and extremely independent) politics are on display throughout, especially on incendiary first single, 'Open Season', whose video has received over 100,000 views on uTube in only three weeks. 'For The Cause Of Allah' addresses the same huge issue, and Rich goes with a Stuck characteristic - the sampling of interview segments - even though this song is a Zepplin-esque chill moment, on which Ward's immense studio manipulation talents are demonstrated, but in a restrained manner. 'Metal Is Dead' proves that when Stuck Mojo is on the attack, no one is heavier - that riff just beats you up and weirdly, it's so mad at the world, any form of singing would lack the power of a spat-at rap, which is what you deserve and get. All told, Southern Born Killers is another expert foray into the half dozen or so characteristics this band owns alone. For the art, for the metal, for the words. It's an explosive package that confirms why so many of today's metal elite, consider Stuck Mojo, as one of their favorite bands. New version features 3 new and unreleased tracks.
