Like the bands that make you bang your head!!!
"tetsel"
The song ends with a great breakdown, one that has been played many times in my car's cd changer.
JoeColeIsGod
This album is full of killer guitar hooks that are catchy yet brutally heavy.

If you're a Pantera fan, avoid this. SJR is metal in its most filthy, grungy, disgusting pinnacle. If you want technical wankery, blazing solos, and orthodox vocals, go listen to Helloween or Iron Maiden; But for those who are looking for down-to-earth, straight-forward, crusty, old-school metal, pick this up at all costs. This is metal with tinges of old punk and hardcore, overshadowed by an obvious of bands like Celtic Frost, Venom, and Motorhead. "Use Once and Destroy" is the audio equilvalent of getting beat mercilessly, having your wallet stolen from a thief, and being left in a dumpster... Yeah, it's THAT furious. SJR maybe aren't the most talented metalheads on the block, but if there is one thing they have, it's ATTITUDE. The whole album has a DIY backdrop to it, discarding fame for ethics. SJR's music is the ultimate expression of saying you don't care about anything, and you couldn't care less about life itself! Another thing, these guys have a lot of GROOVE. Yes, groove. You could headbang to this all day, no joke! The boys alternate between stoner dirges, hardcore breakdowns, and furious punk-influenced speed metal, but never once does it get boring. There are a lot of catchy parts as well. Phil is a LOT different here. He has a visceral high-pitched scream through the whole album, but also does a lot of mid-pitched yelling, adding to the punk feel of this album.

The production is done really well, but holds the raw essence of all instruments, especially the drums, which are pin-point perfect, but simple. The smallest things here can be effective. Guitars hold a fuzzy quality, but have a lot of clarity. Kevin knows how to jam, that's for sure! There's an evident Black Sabbath influence thorughout the whole, almost making it a stoner album.

With Pantera on hiatus, their frontman Phil Anselmo has unleashed yet another side project onto the metal scene this year, this time it's Superjoint Ritual. Joining forces with Jimmy Bower of Eyehategod and C.O.C. (and also member of Anselmo's DOWN), Hank Williams III, and Joe Fazzio, the band has crafted a demonic, borderline death metal sound showing shades of Venom and Celtic Frost. The only other way I can describe it is like a less talented Pantera with a lot more screaming than usual. Songs like "Everyone Hates Everyone", "The Alcoholik", "All Of Our Lives Will Get Tired", and "Creepy Crawl" are highlights here, but some of the songs sound too similar to one another, which isn't such a bad thing, but considering the album's 18 total cuts just clocking in at under an hour long, this could have been better. All in all, Superjoint Ritual may not be the best material these guys have ever put out, but if you are craving something really heavy but don't want to get into death metal, then check this out.

In 2001, after Pantera released "Reinventing The Steel" a year earlier, Phil continued work on two of his other bands, Necrophagia and Viking Crown, as well as starting a new group, Southern Isolation. Then Phil returned in 2002 with Down and Superjoint Ritual. Superjoint actually released their first demo in 1997, but they officially debuted in 2002. "Down II" proved to be quite a disappointment, but, fortunately, SJR's "Use Once And Destroy" is very cool. This album is much more hardcore-influenced and underground-sounding than anything released by Pantera or Down. The downtuned guitars, fast drumming, and Phil's constant, throat-straining, lung-stretching yells make this record a very raw, seething, dissonant, relentless, and sonically crushing assault. There are a few moments when a song will sound somewhat traditional or catchy, but then Phil's roaring voice will explode through your speakers and shatter that song's opportunity. Phil hinted at this type of extreme vocal style on Pantera's 1996 disc, "The Great Southern Trendkill," as well as "Reinventing The Steel," but he only fully lets loose on this album. Phil's performance isn't as great or expansive as it was on past releases with his name on it, but it is every bit as expressive and it helps to make these songs as intense as they are.

Most of "Use Once And Destroy" is very fast, but it does sound somewhat like Phil's other band when the tempos slow down. Two examples of this are "The Introvert," which sounds like a "Far Beyond Driven"-era tune, and "Superjoint Ritual," a slower, mostly instrumental track which sports a fairly big groove and blowtorch, jackhammer guitars, could be a b-side from "The Great Southern Trendkill."

"Oblivious Maximus," opens this album, and might be the best song on here.

I love Pantera, but Superjoint Ritual is also good. SJR sometimes sounds like a heavier version of Pantera minus the longer guitar solos. The lyrics aren't exactly great, the voclas are mostly screaming, the guitar is pretty good, the drumming is great, and the bass is ok. Can't wait for their third CD to come out!

Overall:

A great CD. Also, pick up their second CD; it also rules.
