Pre-Metal Syndrome

  • Pre-Metal Syndrome
  • P.M.S. (Buy Our) 1987 

Formed in New York by a pair of Florida-born sisters, this cleverly named female quintet plays grungy hard-rock with snarling vocals. While lyrics run from topical (“Crush the Apartheid,” “This Is…”) to standard doomsaying (“1984”) to splatter (“Night Stalker”) to B-movie bikerdom (“Bitch in Heat”); the music is unwaveringly dull.
