Me and that Man - New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.2 (2021)


After unleashing one of the weirdest and yet totally awesome unconventional releases of 2020, Nergal and company, Me and that Man, are back to one-up their previous release with an even wilder follow-up. Featuring more over the top guest, more catchiness, and the same occult and kick-ass attitude, “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.2” is one hell of a ride that everybody that liked the first one, should not miss out on.

The release opens up with the somber “Black Hearse Cadillac”, an awesome bluessy opener that features Hank Von Hell (RIP) and Anders Odden as guests. Keeping the mood high Tobias Forge guests on the superbly catchy western-like “Under the Spell”. While we could name drop this whole review as tracks like “All Hope Has Gone” feature Metal luminaries like Blaze Bailey and Gary Holt, or pieces like “Losing My Blues” deliver an all-out party mood with people like Olve Abbath Eikemo, Frank The Baptist and Chris Holmes involved, we particularly like the odd songs like “Witches Don't Fall in Love” featuring Garm of Ulver fame.

In a release full of excellent songs and extreme catchiness, we have to say that tracks like “Goodbye “ with Alissa White-Gluz, Devin Townsend, and its Kid Rock vibe, alongside the hellishly solemn “Angel of Light” (with Myrkur) are easy stand-outs from the rest. However, there is still a certain magical appeal to more traditional songs like “Year of the Snake” with David Vincent and “Blues & Cocaine” with Michale Graves.

Overall, “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.2” takes Me and that Man one step further than their previous record. With so many excellent guest appearances and killer music, this release is one for the ages. Blowing everybody else in the genre completely out of the water, Nergal definitely has another magical band in his hands with this one.
