Broken Teeth

Bulldozer (TMU)

Texas Platters

More compendium than new work, the sixth disc from Austin metal icon Jason McMaster's Broken Teeth pulls together previously released singles, covers, and three new tunes. The latter Bulldoze. The amphetamine boogie/thrash of "Raining Fire" and "The Rough and the Tumble" crack concrete, while "Red River Rising" pumps snarling pound-up with hometown pride. Older tracks "Flamethrower" and "Devil on the Road" deliver solid thrills, even if the shine has dulled, but Motörhead and Aerosmith covers do little more than pay tribute to prime influences.
