Coroner - No More Color

1989 Noise Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-01

And the band played on... A little history, I got this album when it came out, but after digging PFD for so long, I felt that No More Color was a tad too slow, a bit boring, and it didn't get played much. Hearing it today, I don't know what the hell was wrong with me! This Album rules, it being the first Coroner album to scale down (no pun intended) the guitar heroics in favor of more riff oriented (granted, very technically oriented) song structures. The solos are still intact, as crazy and outstanding as ever, and here the always capable rhythm section have caught up, matching and pushing forward Baron on his musical journeys. Stand out tracks would have to be Read my Scars and Tunnel of Pain (such cool lyrics), but all the tracks are killer, the first perfect Coroner record for the world to enjoy, for start to finish, not a second is wasted here. A transition album of sorts, No More Color also clears the path for the incredibly industrial Mental Vortex and the even more off kilter Grin.
