Peace Love Death Metal

Posted on

Baring a feral yet suave soul, the saucy trio of Jesse Hughes, Timmy VanHamel, and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) are more Elvis than Entombed. Their album combines strut-worthy classic rock, rabble-rousing twang, and a whole lot of hubba-hubba, with Hughes going from soft falsetto to deep come-on, thrusting his hips into every bare-bones groove. It ain’t death metal, but Hughes’ titillating vocal performance makes these Eagles soar.
