CD Reviews

Awesomely thumping riff-industrial-metal-trance-rock...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got this CD about 10 months ago, on the same day as Darkest Days, though I didn't MEAN to get this (my sister found it, and bought it without me knowing; I'd been wanting to get DD for a few months). Ironically, there's no contest... THIS is easily their best CD (I had WBBP for about 5 months before these two). The riffs aren't totally mindblowing on their own, but when combined with Chris Hall's amazing, screaming vocals, they bring the songs to life, and make you want to MOVE. Hard to say what; jump around, headbang, play air guitar, scream, whatever! "Ungod" is one of the best 'epic' songs I've ever heard, and the guys' riff is used even better here than in "Hey Man Nice Shot" by Filter (after all, SW had it first). And "Lies" has the chunky Mettalica palm-mute type riff, with Chris shouting "You are haunting my reality, your LIES are the only truth that I believe! " Awesome... buy this album, trust me (sounds cliche, but true)."
Stabbing Westward's Best
jaime_mateo | Montgomery Township, J.J. | 01/20/2000

""Ungod" is definitely worth adding to any rock collection; it is Stabbing Westward's best. (Don't construe this to mean that the band's other albums are bad, they are, in fact, quite good.) "Ungod" is considerably darker than the band's other albums, "Wither Blister Burn + Peel" and "Ungod." David Suycott's drumming on this album is considerably more textured than that of his successor, Andy Kubiszewski, as is evident in the introduction to the song "Can't Happen Here." Stuart Zechman's guitar playing is the best guitar work the band has featured to date, largely because it is not masked beneath layers of keyboards and samples. Keyboardist/programmer Walter Flakus has success here because he tries to complement Zechman's guitar rather than trying to compete with it. "Ungod" also has some excellent bass lines, the likes of which have never again been seen by this Chicago band. Listening to "Ungod," like any Stabbing Westward album, is an excellent means of venting anger, sorrow, and frustration, especially with the song "Violent Mood Swings." You can't go wrong with any album by Stabbing Westward if that is your purpose, but "Ungod" is the band's best work to date."
Possibly the Greatest Album Ever

"My extremely biased view of Stabbing Westward already shines through in the title of this review. The music on here is just phenomenal. Though SW is just recently gaining the fame they deserve, their original album, Ungod, is still the favorite of most of their long time fans.Persons new to the group who have purchased a CD on the account of 'What do I have to do?' or 'Save Yourself' should definately give this music a try. The blaring anger of Chris Hall in 'Throw' and the passion he sings with in 'Nothing' and 'ACF' are incomparable to anything else. Also featured on the CD is the skill of Stewart Zemekis before he left to join Robert Patrick in Filter (I hope I got the names right). He adds a new dimension to some of the tracks (such as Ungod) that fans of either band will enjoy.I would go as far to say that anyone who has a soul should feel something in this music. The band's zeal seems to have slowly faded in each successive album but here in Ungod it is at its zenith. If you only buy one CD in your entire life it should be this one.-Zilean"
