The 'Chu is going back to their roots after releasing The Action is Go on Mammoth. Man's Ruin resurrects 3 Fu Manchu classics, including a cover of Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla" for re-release. This makes a bold statement to the Seventies metal sound Fu Manchu so wonderfully preserve. (When are they going to cover Sabbath's "Sweet Leaf"?!?)
Five new tracks have been included, featuring the scorching title track and "Shift Kicker." Both should carry an advisory about listening while driving. These two tunes back-to-back will cause death-defying speeds and general apathy for those foolish enough to cross your path!
Fu Manchu carries the torch of skateboarding, hot-roddin', hell-raisin' Fuzz Rock for both young and old, not to mention generations to come. Learn it, Live it, Love it...
