Album Review: Was This the Only Way?

Title:  Was This the Only Way? (BandCamp, State Line Records, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Ebenezer Blood (Facebook, BandCamp, ReverbNation, Last.fm)

Who knew that The Ducky Boys’ Mark Lind had a soft spot for ‘90s hard rock and metal?  It’s that side of his musical self that is expressed in the band Ebenezer Blood.  Their debut album Was This the Only Way? crunches and pounds and can easily hold its own against the likes of Helmet, Clutch, and Danzig.  Lyrically the record is classic Lind with songs about injustice and the sad state of America.  In a lot of ways this record and project really reminds me of Kevin Seconds’, of 7 Seconds fame, early ‘90s band Drop Acid.  Was This the Only Way? is a great record for fans of hard rock and metal.
