Following the group's unsuccessful breakup in 2002, 'Til The Livin' End is a return to form with fine tuning. Like 2001's Death Alley, this year's model allows no pit stops between laps as the songs tailgate treacherously. But pared down to a trio, the crew is tighter and a few milliseconds faster. Blind Marky Felchtone, who croaks like Lemmy Kilmister, delivers riffs that closely mirror Diamond Jeff Matz's bass lines -- which aren't just dirty, they're plain lewd. Then Felchtone throws it into overdrive with a blindingly fast Motor City solo. End is the audio equivalent of whizzing past the scant buildings of a small town with a hundred miles of asphalt in the rearview and the hammer down.
