Album Review

The early 21st century saw the emergence of an onslaught of hard rockin' duos (most notably, the White Stripes). But Athens, GA's Jucifer was an exception to the rule: guitarist/singer Amber Valentine and drummer Edgar Livengood have been doing the two-piece thang since 1994. And as evidenced by their debut for the Relapse label (their third full-length overall), 2006's If Thine Enemy Hunger, the duo has no problem replicating the molasses-like heavy riffing/plodding tempos of the Melvins and Saint Vitus. As evidenced by such tracks as "She Tides the Deep" and "Four Suns," the group mostly follows a recipe that consists of Valentine's hushed vocals that can barely be made out over all the distorted power chords, while the verses keep the volume in check, before it spills over full-force into the choruses. Elsewhere, on tracks such as "Lucky Ones Burn" and "Pontius of Palia," Jucifer morphs into an indie rock band. But overall — imagine a sleepy Debbie Harry fronting Black Sabbath — you're not far off from the metallic style that Jucifer specialize in.

Good Gawd Yes

It was worth the wait for the new album...damn, can't believe I missed y'all live again last month...been too long since seeing ( I mean FEELING) Jucifer live!

BUY THIS NOW!!!

This is a great album! I've never felt the need to write a revue but this album is worthy of the time. If you like anything droney with a lot of Sabbathesc riffs, you'll praise this piece of work. I saw these guys live in Denver with Drunk Horse and they blew the place out. Go see them live!

If thine enemy hungers is very cool..

I dig this band. They are a wall of sound for only 2 members. Kind of like the Melvins with a chick singer. Most cool and enjoyable.

Rising out of a new wave of independent music from Athens, Georgia, sludge metal duo Jucifer produced a sound that resembled R.E.M. about as much as the New York Dolls resembled Barry Manilow. Alternating between atmospherics and frantic punk metal, the boyfriend-girlfriend team of Ed Livengood and Amber Valentine began impressing locals with their performing skills in 1993. Their first album, Calling All Cars on the Vegas Strip, began getting airplay at the end of 1998 and was released that same...
