Rock Steady

Sometimes, though, old habits die hard. The majestic opener, "Colonies," starts out buoyant and airy before derailing into deviant dungeon practices—like two separate songs, almost. On "Nitrous"—a collaboration with fellow heavy-metal junglist Trace—the boys revert back to pimply adolescence in a masculine mind-fuck."Nitrous" huffs its chest up and sucks the life out of the soundsystem, only to give it back in one, long, shredded guitar windmill . . . oops, I mean bassline. You don't shake and swing to Bad Co.—you pogo and pump the fist. You rock out with your cock out. Even my yoga-freaking, veggie-eating, om-chanting roomie says Bad Co. tracks make him want to drive really, really fast, or kill somebody. Like a manly man.
