ENTER THE HAGGIS

Gutter Anthems

2009-04-06

This is the seventh studio album from Toronto-based Enter the Haggis. It is Celtic-rock that has everything from drinking songs with sing-along choruses (The Litter and the Leaves) to a traditional-style tin whistle and fiddle instrumental (Did You Call Me Albatross) to Jayhawks-inspired harmonies (DNA). Some songs can be a little heavy such as "The Death of Johnny Mooring" with its electric guitars, heavy drums, and even some distortion on the fiddle! (Cool!) There is even an instrumental prog-rock piece (Murhpy's Ashes) that sounds as if some DJ mixed Dropkick Murphys with Pink Floyd. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
