El Drugstore are a band from New Jersey that plays an instrumental form of freak out metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Plague Ship' which was released by Nefarious Industries.
"Tell Them I Said Something" which is also the first song on the album opens up with clean yet distorted getting riffs before adding in drums and heavier guitars as well as some bass and you can also hear some melody being utilized in the song.
"Hipster Tits" begins with distorted noises before adding in fast, heavy and melodic guitar and bass riffs along with some drums as well as some avant garde elements which also leads up to some experimental rock style guitar leads which also leads up to a mixture of clean and heavy parts.
"Enthusiastic Corruption Of the Public Good" opens up with heavy bass guitars, drums and distorted amplifier sounds as well as some regular guitar leads which also mix in progressive style guitar riffing and towards the end the music starts to speed up in certain sections of the song.
"Fascinating Underpants" starts up with heavy and melodic guitar riffs along with some drums as well as some powerful sounding bass guitars and halfway through the song guitar leads are added in briefly.
"By What Ill-Begotten Means Have You Procured This" kicks in with heavy guitar and bass riffs which also utilize some melody along with some drums before speeding up and going into a faster direction for a few seconds before slowing down and adding in guitar leads and the song closes with fast riffs and blast beats from the drums.
"The Natives Are Getting Useless" comes in with heavy guitar and bass riffs which also utilize some melody along with some drums and after awhile guitar solos and leads are added into certain sections of the song along with a brief use of blast beats as well as small amount of fast riffing.
"Tokyo Assault" is introduced with tribal style drums before adding in heavy and melodic guitar and bass riffs along with regular drums and a minute later guitar solos and leads start to come in and out of the song

"Pandemonium In The Box" makes its way in with heavy guitar and bass riffs that also utilize some melody along with some drums and a minute later guitar solos and leads start coming in and out of the song.
"Steakback" which is also the last song on the album begins with distorted amp drones which also leads up to some heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some drums along with a small amount of clean playing before getting heavy again as well as the guitar riffing utilizing some melody before adding in a small amount of solos and leads.
Song lyrics are all absent from the recording with all of the music being instrumental, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion El Drugstore are a very great sounding instrumental freak out metal/rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tell Them I Said Something" "Fascinating Underpants" "Wheel Of Sadness" and "Steakback". RECOMMENDED BUY.
