Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Die so Fluid is a tough band. Yet singer Grog admits to having played guitar for Mel C and bass for Kelly Osbourne. That’s pretty brave. Her past also included stints fronting indie bands Flinch and Feline. Her and colleagues Drew Richards and Al Fletcher form a tight, hard rockin’ unit.

The title track features a neat guitar line and a haughty vocal. Grog recalls Siouxsie and that’s good. The track is aggressive but also hummable.

“Circus of Sin” is a marvelous, metallic grind. It makes most bands in the genre seem tame.

“Kiss the Floor” is fierce and relentless in its tempo, Richards guitar makes a strong impression here.

“Suck me Dry” is a gothic drama that just keeps growing. Grog’s singing is great here.

This debut was a long time coming, and it seems to have been worth the wait.
