Atlanta based 5 piece Attila ain´t your average deathmetal band, they leave out lyrics about darkness and blood and instead throw in a load of party factor into their music. Last year they gave us the single "Party with the devil" which I liked a lot and this summer, Attila deliver their 3rd album for Artery / Razor and Tie. That single is included along with a bunch of new party metal songs on "About that life", a record that might seem medium according to my rating but it´s more like a mix of raw and well done. There´s no denying their aggressive and pulsating metal is a perfect match for the festival stages, just listen to tracks like "Thug life", "Hellraiser" or the title track "About that life" that will bring out the sweat in any audience. And it´s not everyday you get to hear rap, growls and hockey choruses on the same album.
