4 way label split of this, Throat's 4th release. First thing I noticed when I picked this up was the At War With False Noise logo and much like any Reeves and Mortimer product, you can be sure this will be a quality release. This label always comes up with the goods, be it with psych freakouts like Vom, doom merchants Black Sun, the blackened noise of Gnaw Their Tounges or the spazz feedback blowouts of Kylie Minoise, I could go on but I don't think Al's ever released a shit record.

Hailing from Finland, Throat do the whole noise rock thing owing more than a nod to Unsane and the like, but there's a bit more to it than that. There's an underlying melody to the whole of the record, the guitarist could indeed be the bastard offspring of Kurt Danielson, pig squeal guitar's going off at all corners. Whilst most tracks are turned up to eleven Throat arn't scared of letting the pace down a bit to leave space to breath. Like on second track "Wake Down" this just make's it all the more effective when the volume kicks back in. Throat also have a great sense of rhythm, the band are tight as fuck showing a great deal of math in their delivery of madness.

All in all a quality release, fans of Unsane, Die 116, Tad, Bastards etc take note and obey.
