Overview

The one and only major-label album by New York's Boiler Room shows a competent if flaccid interpretation of Trent Reznor vocalization and Rage Against the Machine alternative metal bedlam. Each song follows a familiar routine: hair metal bass guitars prop up questionably sensitive verse before launching into screeched-out noise and screams of untargeted venom. It's clichéd musicianship, certainly by 2000, and it didn't lend much weight to the theory that America was climbing out of its well-packaged Korn and Orgy transitional years with any rapidity. Curiously, Can't Breathe had trouble upon its completion. Roadrunner Records had put the album on indefinite hiatus until Tommy Boy picked it up for a proper release, only for Tommy Boy to drop the band once their interim contract expired. With no label, Boiler Room broke up shortly thereafter in the summer of 2001.
