Paselode were a short lived Wellington, New Zealand band. With a self-destructive line-up that didn't get along, they survivied one album only in 2004. The big surprise is just how good this album is.

True - "The Taming of the Wasps" is somewhat all over the place - it has variety! Catchy pop sounds, hard rock sounds, Deep Purple Hammond organ sounds, fast pace, slow pace. Some brilliant songs, some pop catchy, and some for me don't add a lot.

The album is also boosted by excellent musicianship, and an excellent mix.

"Lock And Load" was a minor hit and used on the TV series Outrageous Fortune.

As a fan of Hammond organ meets hard rock, it's little surprise I can't help but like some of the tracks for this alone, eg "Stories".

If you'd like to see a cartoon about the rapid rise and more rapid fall of Paselode you can! - The Paselode Story.
