      Very helpful



      Entertaining and worth a listen once or twice

      Now the Animals Have A Voice is not what you'd find on Top of the Pops and it makes "Who Let the Dogs Out" look as timid as can be, the album by Caninus features two pitbulls "Budgie" and "Basil" on vocals, in 2004 they brought a whole new meaning to the death metal growl.

      My dog considers the music to be dubious but I find that the music itself is actually faultless as far as grindcore goes and this side-project of hardcore guitarist Justin Lee Brannan is pretty cool. I'm clearly not the only one as the band have gone on to release 2 further split albums and have clearly found a niche market.

      A band with two adopted pitbulls are always going to be deemed a novelty act but on the musical front the band are really rather good and whilst I'm not going to deeply look into the lyrics of woof, growl, snarl, they have been mixed in well to form some fairly catchy tunes! This was a fairly good debut album and the follow-up "Bird Seeds of Vengeance" with parrot fronted Hatebeak did not equal it, the latest release with Cattle Decapitation is superb (as far as pitbull grindcore goes)

      The song titles are of course play on words of well known tracks, the last one "F*ck the American Kennel Club" is particularly amusing, this album gets the thumbs up from me!
