CD Reviews

Not very good! Get other Mentors and side projects first.
Mondo Vendo | Detroit, Michigan USA | 09/27/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I am a huge Mentors fan but I have to say this isn't very good. The notes say the band is Coven and they are not the amazing musicians that Dr. Heathen Scum and Sickie Wifebeater are. They suck! Or at least they didn't show their talent here.

The songs are incredibly simple. No musicianship at all. And El Duce does not deliver any real classic lines here. In fact in "Living on Welfare 1 and 2", he gives absolutely weak lines and repeats "Living on Welfare and I Don't Care" over and over.

The whole thing seems like Coven and El Duce got together and made this in a matter of hours. Like they did instant music and lyric writing on an absolutely no inspiration session.

If you have all the Mentors product and are going to buy some side projects, here are some better suggestions.

The best is when El Duce teamed up with Gardy Loo! for an album called "Perverts on Parade". Gardy Loo features Ben Meyer of Nasty Savage and reportedly this has some guitar work originally intended for Nasty Savage.

Another good choice is El Duce and Dr. Heathen Scum side project Musical Pornography. The songs are not Mentor level quality but both the musicianship and humor beat "Slave To Thy Master" by miles. There are some stand-out tracks here.

You can also hunt down "Karaoke King I" and "Karaoke King II" which literally feature El Duce singing to karaoke songs with new perverted lyrics. This turns of to be a lot more humorous than "Slave To Thy Master".

There is also "El Duce The Man The Myth The Legend". I really can't comment on this because I don't remember it well at all. I had a cassette of this in the early 90s which got stolen and I can't seem to get another one even direct from Dr. Scum who I know. I do know it was about as good as "Musical Pornography" and certainly better than "S.T.T.M" and the "Karaoke King"s.

You may also be unaware of the Mentors albums "Rock Bible" and "To The Max". Get these before the side projects. I believe these were only released on the Mentors own label and may be very hard to get though. "Rock Bible" has some especially great songs "Sit on my face and squirm", "Kings of Sleaze" and "Sex Education".

Anyway, "Slave to Thy Master" is the worst Mentors related product. If you are die-hard Mentors fan, by all means get it. But if you are not a Mentors collection completist, you should definitely get the others before this.

As far as "S.T.T.M." is concerned, the best track is probably "Meat Rack". The music is very catchy but unfortunately so simple, the catchiness will wear off after a few listens and you will not be able to enjoy it over and over in a row.

The 2nd best track is "Ungroomed Lover". This is the one song that has some genuinely hilarious El Duce lyrics. Unfortunately, the only really funny lyrics are in this one song only.

The 3rd best song is "Assh*le Gassholene". Sadly the song starts out catchy and turns really monotonous fast. Even more sad is the fact that this song is already to the mediocre level and is only the 3rd best song on the album.

I have to say it about an El Duce song but the rest of the songs are bad.

This is for people who want to get everything available by the Mentors but it will not be played often.

I have it and am glad I have it but it rarely sees the CD player."
