If somebody had told me that the new Fugazi would be found in Louisville, Kentucky, I may have raised an eyebrow of skepticism. Yet, as I first listened to the new ‘Sister Faith’ CD by Coliseum, I felt a welcome sense of familiarity. Ryan Patterson’s vocal was especially something I felt I knew. Then I realized… he’s like the perfect blend of Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto!

The raging post-punk meets melodic metal sound of ‘Sister Faith’s material is bold, raw, impassioned, and completely satisfying. Every track rumbles forward with the thrust and intensity of a locomotive engine. To say these songs have a sense of urgency would be a massive understatement. Patterson sings like his life depends on it, and his un-caged guitar approach is like a rock ‘n roll ringleader taming the wild feedback beast.

Coliseum is rounded out by Kayhan Vaziri and Carter Wilson, a rhythm section that kicks harder than a donkey forced headfirst in to a stanchion. ‘Sister Faith’ was produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox fame. The first single is “Love Under Will”, and other stand-out tracks include “Black Magic Punks”, “Under The Blood Of The Moon”, and “Bad Will”. I can’t recommend this CD enough!
