Album Review

Supernaut may not outwardly revel in the metal power their name implies (as in that little Black Sabbath ditty), but regardless, they sure do kick a lot of ass. Pabst-drenched and with a hardened edge, Burning Through the Motions is a revitalizing blast of guitar-powered excellence and jean-jacket coolness. Commanded by the chain-smoking vocals of ex-Daylights frontman Scott Chapin, Supernaut rock hard with an invigorating balance of post-grunge muscle, punk grit, roguish attitude, and oh yeah, all these tight little hooks that attach directly to the brain.

Basically, each song cuts through the air like a potent and strangely comforting shot of whiskey downed in any tattered local dive, and — despite the slight sting left behind — one will be left craving more. But unlike the activities one might get involved in at said bar, Burning Through the Motions will leave behind no hangovers or morning-after regrets to deal with. Just 11 rockin' songs to throw on again.

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Portland's Supernaut were formed in late 2004 by vocalist/guitarist Scott Chapin, a few years after the dissolution of his previous band, the Daylights, who were together seven years and found minor MTV success. He hooked up first with drummer Mike "Basil" Ternyik (ex-Sweaty Nipples) and, after a few rehearsals together, began the hunt to round out the rest of Supernaut's lineup. (Chapin is a huge Black Sabbath fan, hence naming the group after one of Sabbath's classic songs.) Bassist Mike Lee, formerly...
