Album Review

If one never expected to once again face the prospect of another heavy rock/metal band with a decidedly intense female vocalist after similar acts from the early '90s (Babes in Toyland, Hole, etc.) fell apart, one may have to think again. In addition, it may be necessary to reexamine what a band like that can do. While that first wave of bands collapsed under the weight of public expectation and overdriven personality/ego, Made Out of Babies signal that a whole different scope must be used to see what is truly possible. Trophy, their debut, is a tight, strong, heavy, and downright tough record. It pulls no punches, and it never tries to bite off more than it can chew. The band is nearly flawless, giving the music momentum that borders on chaos, yet never spins out of control. Vocalist Julie Christmas is undoubtedly the star here, an in-your-face singer who never lets her "personality" get in the way of adding to the pummeling. While bands of similar style always came off as trying too hard, Made Out of Babies make it all seem so damn natural and easy on Trophy. This is a fantastic metal record ("Ire Fire" and "Sugar" being definite standouts) that proves there's space in the genre for a female vocalist without having to be some sort of overdriven Enya or some crazy baby doll dress-wearing cliché. A most intriguing beginning. ~ Christopher M. True, Rovi

This album would be worth it for Herculoid and Loosey Goosey alone, but it turns out that the whole album is stunning. Julie Xmas's vocals sounds so refreshing. The arrangements so interesting. While obviously at home with the Neurot Recording company, MoB is not in any way just wearing their Neurosis influences on their sleeve. I can't get enough of this band.

Are you f'n kidding me????

How I missed this band is beyond me. I first listened to Ruiner and had to buy this and Coward. All three albums are outstanding!

Hardcore, great vocals.

There are some really good reviews of this band and of this album in particular on the web. Ire Fire is what drew me to the band, then hearing some more on Pandora got me really into them. Great heavy metal/punk backbeat and sounds with a really obnoxiously loud female vocals that make you love her despite your initial inclination not to. Lots of anger pouring out of Julie Christmas, but oh so completely legitimate and compelling. Nothing emo about this chick, just refined, not raw, emotional outbursts that will really spiral you down and outward, which is rare enough in itself today. If you dont' wanna buy the entire album, which is my opinion is good enough to warrant full purchase, recommendations for singles are Ire Fire and Swarm.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

A Brooklyn, NY-based metal outfit, the pummeling chaos that was Made Out of Babies drew comparisons to noise rock legends Jesus Lizard, as well as Babes in Toyland and Big Black. Their first album, Trophy, was released in 2005. Signed to Neurot Recordings, members Julie Christmas (vocals), Brendan Tobin (guitarist), Cooper (bass), and Matthew Egan (drums) won themselves critical acclaim for both their (brutal) live shows and their (equally brutal) recorded work, which features a relentless post-metal...
