King of Fools cd cover


King of Fools

Normally, Iím not a big fan of eps, but since this was more like a treat for their fans in anticipation of their upcoming cd, Hellfire Club, than something released in place of an actual album, itís a much more enjoyable experience. Itís only five songs and the last one is more of a satirical look at bonus tracks in the music industry than an actual song, but the other four are solid songs instead of the usual throw away out takes you normally find on an ep. I should however warn you, track two has a disturbing habit of combining the F-word with Jesus Christ, so if you are a religious person, you might want to pass on that track. Honestly though, the remaining three songs are still worth the four or five bucks. -- Scott
