    The South will Rise Again! Right out the gate, the southern fried rock phoenix, Molly Hatchet, soars into the dark clouds of adversity with this, their third album, BEATIN' THE ODDS. The title track crashes out of the back of the garage, sending the chickens flying and puts it into high gear with the country-slick-funk-rock that knows no end. You don't need a weatherman to let you know what the time is? How's the weather? It's raining electric pitchforks that have no mercy, Hallelujah! The aptly named album was the result of Hatchet's O.G., Danny Joe Brown's departure (diagnosed with Diabetes), and it brandishes the mark of frontman Jimmy Farrar on the back-end of the band's famous almost-heavy metal three-guitar attack. When they get it together, that stuff can strip paint of the walls better than moonshine in the mountains. Beyond the serious Southern bounce they sear into the music, they also get serious on a few issues that stand the test of time. 'Dead And Gone' addresses the fatal attraction of heroin and 'Poison Pen' unfurls a Rebel flag rising up against the power that journalists and media possess (delivered with the same angle that Johnny Rotten & The Sex Pistols did on 'I Wanna Be Me').
    One may wonder what's hiding behind that gothic Frank Frazzetta album cover? A sleek and sharp 9-wheeled truck ready to plow some new terrain in your brain; hungry audiences wanting some of that mmm-mmm fat-drenched tasty mix of Hatchet swimming in the thick gravy are gonna be satisfied.
