      Disadvantages

      Carnivore's second album (1987).

      The second and final album before Carnivore disbanded is an even fiercer effort than its predecessor, abandoning the sci-fi image to concentrate more fully on contemporary social themes, albeit from the band's customary mostly-sarcastic perspective.

      Beginning with a recording of someone puking out their guts on 'Jack Daniels and Pizza,' the album launches into a full-speed hardcore punk/thrash assault that only slows down on rare occasions, such as the end of the anti-racism song 'Race War,' with Peter Steel barking with a level of hatred that will surprise fans of his later work in Type O Negative. The most entertaining and creative parts of the album are his Henry Rollinsesque spoken-word rants, the likes of which dominate the commendably bitter 'Angry Neurotic Catholics,' but listeners who lack a sense of humour won't appreciate the band's attacks on everything from religion to homosexuality in songs such as 'S.M.D.' ('Suck My something').

      Then again, it's always difficult with this band to tell just how seriously they intend to be taken. While it's clear from the context that the proclamations of 'Race War' are attacking racism rather than its victims, the band's view of women was pretty fairly summed up on the preceding album. Similarly, I'm sure Peter Steel means everything he says about religion, but it's obvious that some of it is exaggerated, and needs to be taken within context. But no worries, as it wouldn't be like religious devotees to blindly ignore context and irony, would it?
