One of the world's greatest Arnold Schwarzenegger-themed metal bands working today, Austrian Death Machine return with Triple Brutal, an album of aggressive, chest-thumping metalcore that mines its running gag for all it's worth. Continuing to pack the album with over the top riffs and punishing sonic brutality, As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis delivers a crushing volley of big dumb metal paired with random Arnold appearances. Although the schtick can wear a bit thin at times, musically Triple Brutal is a solid album ready-made for the mosh pit, and those looking to get some cathartic metal that doesn't take itself too seriously, or maybe just a little more of The Governator, into their lives won't be disappointed.
