Initially there seems to be a lot of Noothgrush going on here: big, blunt, nerve-damaged riffs that groove sluggishly away while rasped vocals are pebble-dashed tastefully across the top. By track two things pep up slightly, the band changing gear and seeming to gun for that lurching, booze-battered hardcore sound perfected by the likes of Fistula and Eyehategod. Things sway unsteadily between the two poles hereafter, rendering something that’s sonically sound but lacking the beleaguered sense of sorrow and moral degradation to really tip them over the edge. Still, there’s a new release out shortly, so let’s see where things are when that one stumbles round the corner.
