Slaughterhouse 3 â€“ S/T / 2006 Abstract Logix / 11 Tracks / http://www.abstractlogix.com /
There is a lot of Primus present in Slaughterhouse 3. This is due to the fact that the band starts out the disc with a self-titled track that has the same eclectic sound as what has been crafted in the past by bands like Primus and To My Surprise. There is a little bit more funk and jazz present than in the latterâ€™s composition, but there is more than a passing comparison to be made. What could be done to increase the allure of this album would be to add a set of vocals at specific times.
The band may be big fans of noodling around and doing a jazz version of a jam band, but Slaughterhouse 3 seems to come back to the same general sound time in and time out on this self titled debut. The band has a tremendous amount of talent, but there needs to be a little bit more in the way of variation present in their music. Hopefully it will be the case that Slaughterhouse 3 adds some of the changes Iâ€™ve suggested. This album sat on the shelves for a while, besides the fact that it was recorded in July of 2005, it has a release date of 2006 as a self-released album, and finally was released by Abstract Logix this year. The band has members that have been around the block quite a few times (Gary Willis and Kirk Covington are two of the three members), but there just is not enough in the way of new material provided listeners to make this album spin quickly or stick with listeners after it finishes up.
