Tortoise Corpse  


An obscure Welsh band, Tortoise Corpse's World's Got A Problem mixes gruff vocals, a healthy NWOBHM influence, and a slight Motorhead-ish style (musically, not vocally). The result is interesting, though ultimately not all that exciting (a substandard production doesn't help much). By contrast, the later Standard Of Misery brightens things considerably, with a much-improved production and improved songwriting -- here, the style is more along the lines of power metal, a bit thrashy at times, and in general much more quirky than the first album, due in large part to the stylish guitarwork of Tim Hamill (also much improved from the first album). In short, World's Got A Problem isn't much, but Standard Of Misery is quite interesting.
