NASCAR on Fox: Crank It Up

NASCAR on Fox: Crank It Up

CD

Overview

Are many typical NASCAR fans also fans of in-yer-face metal/hard rock/punk rock crossover? That seems to be the assumption behind this compilation of driving songs, most though not all in the blustery macho vein. That's a suitable soundtrack, perhaps, for images of cars whooshing over the road in undue haste, though it doesn't make for the greatest music. Rob Zombie, Slayer, and Slipknot are some of the biggest names on this collection, whose liner notes are dotted with quotes by many (though, again, not all) of the artists extolling the relationship between, as Tantric puts it, "fast cars and fast music." Extreme liberties are taken with some vintage classics like Jimi Hendrix's "Crosstown Traffic" (by (hed) pe), Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" (by Buckcherry), Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild" (by Slayer), and "Hot Rod Lincoln" (by Les Claypool, who's less prone to overdoing the histrionics than most of the other artists). Of course, subtlety is not the hallmark of either NASCAR or hard rock, but some cuts are plagued with the worst sort of retching grindcore vocals. Others, like Fenix TX's "Get out of My Dreams (Get Into My Car)," are in a more tuneful and slightly rootsier good-time cruising vibe, though aggressive let-nothing-stand-in-my-path energy is the prevalent mood.

Five stars hands down! This is a killer compilation of true hard rock and heavy metal at its best! I usually don't write reviews for anything but, trust me, this time it is necessary. ''Circles'' by Nonpoint and Tantric's ''Cross The Line'' are a couple of my favorite tracks on the CD but the whole compilation is worth CRANKIN' UP! Truly a perfect mix of bands that represent metal and rock to the core!! I definitely suggest all hard rock and heavy metal fans to buy this CD. You won't be disappointed!
