It took Superdrag a total of 10 days spread out over a nine-month period to finish Industry Giants, and that sense of urgency is apparent in the breathlessness of "Slow To Anger" and "5 Minutes Ahead of the Chaos." Davis: "I don't want to soften up and be forced to play slower and quieter just because we've gotten older. I want to play harder, louder, and faster." Perhaps the idea of a pious man kicking out the jams is incongruous to some, but for Davis, it is possible to get your God and your groove on at the same time. "Just love God, I don't trust in man/Armed with the truth against the wickedness at hand," he sings in "Aspartame." And then the band dig in — not so much like men of God as like gods of thunder.
