God Bless the USA Is a Monster

A fantastic prog-noise institution goes out on top

Amazing: yet another record. Getting hit with news like this makes it hard to believe that a group this on top of its game would actually call it quits thereafter. Load's McOsker agrees: "Tom is moving away," he says. "But they're not necessarily breaking up—that's just my hunch."

Then again, they both sound dead-ass tired of the grimy noise-rock lifestyle. I suppose that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, considering the Monster are busting their asses right before retirement. But there's no great secret here. It's quite simple, really. Like Ted Williams, who hit a home run on his very last at-bat, Langenus and Hohmann want to go out on top. Banal? Sure. But have they succeeded? Without question.
