Check out a review of the album from UK’s Power Play Magazine:
The Devil Made Me do it
Genre: Punk Rock/Misfits Records
“JuiceheaD are one of the latest new groups to be signed by Misfits Records and it is easy to hear why. JuiceheaD have punk rock tendencies running throughout their songs, both musically and lyrically. The band also have a rough, or raw quality to the tracks on their debut “The Devil Made Me Do It” that just has to appeal to fans of early Misfits. Buzz saw like guitaring, tinny, loud percussion drumming and punk attitude.
The album in true punk fashion clocks in at just over 45 minutes and contains 16 tracks. JuiceheaD barely draw breath between songs before the next one is aired. A mix of fuzzy, distorted guitaring and an earthy, real quality to the vocals make this an addictive listen. Tracks like the opener, “Open Sore”, “Long Way Down”, “Past Repeats Itself” and “Internal Bleeding” assault the listener with their speed, hook laden riffs and lyrical message. While the band even incorporate a reggae element on “Never Say Goodbye” showing an element of diversity as well. However there are so many great tracks on this release that you really should check them all out and decide for yourself which one’s you enjoy.
Fans of punk rock are sure to enjoy JuiceheaD’s debut release, “The Devil Made Me Do It” as it represents basic good old fashioned punk rock done extremely well by these newcomers. Any band that has the Misfits endorsement also has a tick in my box and it is a well deserved one when you listen to the quality of the tracks on this album.”
