KXM - Scatterbrain album review
dUg Pinnick’s astute American power trio reaps as it sows.
This side-project-cum-supergroup’s eponymously titled 2014 debut stimulated a lot of interest, and this second salvo is set to raise the band’s profile further. Initially, the combination of Kings X mainman dUg Pinnick handling bass and lead vocals, Korn drummer Ray Luzier, and Dokken and Lynch Mob axe-wrangler George Lynch might seem a slightly disparate blend. The result, perhaps unsurprisingly, sits somewhere between the nu-metal/alt rock of Korn and the eclectic, hard-edged sounds and soulful hooks of Kings X, with Lynch terrific throughout adding grit and invention.
