Metal Injection reviews “Plague Ship”

“[EL DRUGSTORE] are a difficult band to compare to because so many bands come to mind like old Mastodon, The Fall of Troy, and even High on Fire. However, they are more technical than most of those bands. Most instrumental albums, in my experience, are fine as a whole, but lack any great stand alone songs. Plague Ship is an exception. ‘By What Ill-Begotten Means Have You Procured This Meat?’ is my favorite on the album as it represents everything the band is about and seems to be the most diverse track. It starts crazy, speeds up, slows, becomes melodic, then goes fucking nuts all in about four minutes. […] The result is pleasant. And by pleasant I mean an absolute chaotic clusterfuck of technical metal insanity.” – Metal Injection
