“Listening to The Great American Death Rattle, the third release from Topeka, Kansas, quartet Youngblood Supercult is like stumbling across an old T shirt from a long ago rock festival from the ‘70s. You know, the type of show that would have been labeled an “All-Day Super Jam” and would have involved copious amounts of weed, Budweiser and beautiful girls in cutoffs and tube tops. Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult and Black Oak Arkansas were probably on the bill. Finding that old shirt won’t necessarily bring back memories– they’re too hazy– but it will bring back a feeling that you had a good time, even if the day ended with you puking in the parking lot.
If Youngblood Supercult had existed then, they probably would have played that festival, too. Their hazy take on heavy blues — mixed with a generous dose of English doom and Southern rock — would fit right in with the era’s best classic rock bands. The band’s debt to Sabbath is obvious.” — Karen A. Mann at Metal Bandcamp
