Straight out of the gateget to work, no fucking around. ‘Fault in the AE–35 Unit’ pummels the listener into submission with no apologies.
Get back in the ring, wait to regain consciousness and then the track ‘Muzzle’ will be hard and sharp steel cap to the head. If you can see straight after this track, try and shake it off and head straight into ‘Hazy Cosmic Jive’.
‘Gossamer’ is a deep sludge fest. It’s impossible not to get caught in the riffs. Like quicksand, it sucks you in and refuses to let go.
This is one hell of a relentless album, it doesn’t let go for a microsecond. If you’re a fan of ’80s hardcore bands this is right up your alley. It’s the kind of album you would play if you were on a work site and were in charge of demolition; just start the wrecking ball and smash shit until there is nothing left but dust.
When the album finishes, your body will be shaking for a bit, because of the onslaught, but just press play and go even harder the second time around.
