Music Review: 'Dracula 2000'
Dracula is the most elegant of spooks, coolly seducing his victims before lustily feeding on them. But most of the boorish headbangers here know nothing about restraint. Neo-metalheads Powerman 5000 growl like wounded wolves, while classic thrashers Pantera and Slayer rely on tired riffs that totally bite. Linkin Park, Disturbed, (Hed) P.E., and others give their brutal best, but only stoner rockers Monster Magnet and the femme-fronted Half Cocked have any bloody taste. C-
