Being from San Antonio, The Union Underground is a local band to me. It is awesome to know that someone with actual talent and heaviness is at last from “San Antone.” If you are fans of bands like Alice in Chains and Powerman 5000, you would be wise to check this album out. Their sound is Alice in Chains with more effects and Powerman 5000 with tighter vocals. Do not base the album on the lead single, “Turn me on, Mr. Deadman,” as the rest of the CD is heavier. Songs that I recommend are “South Texas Deathride,” “Until you Crack,” and “Revolution Man.” Overall, Union Underground is a much needed shot in the arm to metal that is totally devoid of any rap influences.
