Poison The Well You Come Before You (Atlantic/Warner) Rating: NN Rating: NN
I scream, you scream, Poison the Well scream, sing a little and then scream some more for major-label ice cream. On their third disc, You Come Before You, they roar between hardcore, grindcore, prog and nu-metal. Does this have anything to do with Refused? The band does a fine job of conjuring the quiet-loud shtick of Sweden's agit-prop princes. It should be noted that a Poison the Well LP is cheaper than a visit to the psychiatrist, so if even one angst-filled tween can maintain his or her sanity by listening to this record, maybe these Floridians have done their job.
