Review of Seething Apparatus by Jason Heller
Westword
8/25/09

GasHead began as a solo project by guitarist Mike Lopez, then branched into a full, albeit instrumental, band — which then blossomed into a full-on, five-headed metal juggernaut with the addition of vocalist Josh Purdy on 2007's The Isolationist. With the group's new EP, though, things have contracted: Tightly focused and unshakably controlled, the four-song Seething Apparatus is a blinding, concentrated burst of GasHead's potent riffage and outrage. Combining vintage thrash with subtle progressive tendencies, Lopez and crew gloriously wreck their own architecture on the searing "EVP" and the thoroughly pissed-off "Got Your Back." But the players manage to do more than just hold shit together; they wield bleak melody like demolition experts and sheer virtuosity with all the science of chaos theoreticians.

4 1/2 Stars out of 5

In 2008, Gas Head changed from being an instrumental speed metal band to a full-on assault that included vocals. Back then, I wrote, “If the lyrics continue to be as strong the band will have hit a stride that could carry them for some time.”

Well here we go, one year later, with the release of their EP Seething Apparatus, this band is, quite simply, kicking ass. Great riffs, killer double-kick drum bangs and ominous lyrics to boot, make this release and the band a prime reason why there is a national resurgence in metal happening.

review of GasHead - Seething Apparatus [EP] by Groovey

GasHead makes metal tunes that are so humongous they can be seen from space. Seriously, the space station must have one hell of a mosh pit. GasHead's latest CD is a 4 song shredfest entitled Seething Apparatus and is available for free download. Most of the time that's a warning sign for “Suckage Ahead” but Seething Apparatus is absolutely top notch in every single aspect. For example the album is co-produced by Dave Beegle and we all know that he's about as big of a powerhouse in any music scene as you can get. Seething Apparatus is GasHead's fifth album and they have built upon those impressive previous releases each time reaching greater and greater heights. If you are one of those people who has to have a physical product to engage the other senses then there's an extra bonus for you cuz the physical CD comes with the video “Speak and Divide”. EVP is my fave song on this release. It's a shredder.

Track Name: Mind Of God
Mind of God

V1
You look in the mirror
And it tells you you’re old
So you’re raising your armies
Increasing your fold

Tongue lashing with bitterness
About the end coming near
Motivating with violence
Controlling with fear

Pre chorus
But no one can know the mind of God
No one can know the mind of God
No one could know the final hour
No one could know the very hour

Chorus
The sun will set
On your prescient words
Just one last regret
You thought you knew it all
You thought you knew it all
But no…

V2
False prophet and “innocents”
Bound together in lies
A comet betrays them
Ten toes up to the sky

Fear mongering power plays
Just separate you from God
You cant reinvent yourself
As some divining rod

Bridge
Complex
You’ve got a Christ-like complex
But never walked in his shoes
Fire
Burning desire
And its
All coming down
A burning desire
To make yesterdays news
Jones
Littered with bones
And its all coming down
Track Name: Got Your Back (tribute to Pat Tillman, U.S. Army Ranger)
I.E.D's in the poppy field
Taking fire from the minaret
Justify just why we're here
We won't forget, we can't forget

They send the legions/blood spill lust
Human shields and "dei-itribes"
Justify just why we're here
You take a life - we'll take you're life

I've got your back
I've got your back
Keep concentrating on the frontal attck
Weathered fire - pyrrhic victory
Who knew that Judas was the enemy

Stop crying and stand up and fight
Be a Ranger. Be a man.
A badge of honor and will to die go hand in hand
That other life, I had it all.
It takes but few to sacrifice.
My last words - remember me
My country tis of thee

I've got your back
I've got your back
Keep concentrating on the frontal attck
Weathered fire - pyrrhic victory
Who knew that Judas was the enemy
