Album Review

After listening to Caustic Resin's Fly Me to the Moon, it'll come as no surprise that the band is a product of the wide spaces and western isolation of Boise, ID. Brett Netson seems to want to fill up — or possibly set fire to — those vast sage-covered valleys with a guitar sound that is equal parts heavy metal and classic space rock. The fact that those categories are typically reserved for pejorative descriptions doesn't mean squat to Caustic Resin, which carves out a unique and often dangerous sound from the dried-up husks of the two musical forms. This is music your parents wouldn't be happy to hear pouring from underneath the door of your bedroom. Take "Cancerous Eye" for instance, where Netson's voice recalls another once dangerous rock hero, Ozzy Osbourne, as he sings, "...and how does it feel/To be connected with things/That threaten your life?"

Though the 16 tracks may not be enough to get you to the moon, there is certainly enough fuel here to get you above the atmosphere of Boise.
