2011 release, the fourth album from the New York-based Metal heads. The Bronx Casket Co. was originally formed in 1998 by Overkill co-founder and bassist DD Verni. The first album simply titled The Bronx Casket Co. was released in 1999. This debut got good reviews by both, journalists and listeners, and THE BCC could establish a fan base which has grown more and more with the release of their second album Sweet Home Transylvania. All of this happened without THE BCC playing one single gig. SAOL.

I was a little leary of the fact that DD was going to be doing all the vocal chores on this one. I really felt like Spy was one of the hooks for me. Well I am very pleased to say that while listening to this for the first time I didn't miss him one bit. DD has stepped in and is nailing everything!
All the songs are catchy. Mike Romeo from Symphony X is laying down almost all of the solos so you know they are smokin. There is a new drummer, which for me as drummer is a noticable change. The previous drummer, although a double bass machine in Overkill, never used the double bass in BCC. The new drummer uses it throughout. It really doesn't matter to me either way because the entire disc is full of great mid tempo rockers and some uncharacteristically fast ones. There is also a couple of off the wall cover tunes that are pulled off extremely well.
I hope this disc get BCC the credit they deserve. I saw them at JAXX in Springfield, VA at what I think still is their only live show (I'm not 100% sure) and there was 15 or 20 people there. That was very dissappointing to me and it was obvious that DD was also dissappointed. I'm hoping for a time when I can see these guys at a packed house.
