With Everything in Excess, their debut release on Cleopatra Records, the Sea Snakes attempt to prove they not only can put on a highly stimulating and sexual visual show, but they can also play some solid rock tunes. And with Excess, that's just what they do.
While tracks such as "Slam Ya" and "Let Go of My Thang" (which features guest vocals by former porn star Jenna Jameson) stick to themes of rough sex, S&M and other kinky matters that have always dominated the band's material, the Snakes venture into some new territory on other tracks. Songs such as "It's Only Life" and "Remake Me" (with its Slash-like guitar solo and Korn-like plea, "I just want to be normal") are more about searching for personal identity than for sexual liberation. And from the goth-rock of "For the Love of Chains" and the darker, Tool-like riff of "Goddess Diana" to the twangier, Southern rock of "Bleeding" and a cover of Janis Joplin's "Me and Bobby McGee," the band ultimately proves it has something going on beyond the onstage antics.
The Impotent Sea Snakes play the Masquerade Sat., May 12.
