The idea of Tub Ring's Rob Kleiner & Kevin Gibson developing the video game sound & their own off-kilter style into an album sounded like kitschy gold to me.
Unfortunately Super 8-Bit Brothers' third album, 2012's Strife isn't exactly what I had hoped for. It might not be a terrible experience but not as innovative as one might expect from these guys and the concept they have on the table. Instead it sounds like a band trying to mimic a watered down Rob Zombie album from the mid-90's with Mike Patton on vocals.
I respect Kleiner for doing whatever the fuck he wants, whether it be his solo albums, Tub Ring, The Satanics, his film scores or this project and releasing album after album for free, so I can't be too harsh on this.
