Rabbits - Bites Rites

Label : | Archive under different metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Erik : Rabbits hails from Portland and consists of drummer KG and guitarists/vocalists Sethro and Booze. The three degenerates have been compared before to bands like The Melvins, Karp, Jesus Lizard, Cows, Flipper, Butthole Surfers, Volcano Suns, Harvey Milk and Brainbomb, and luckily or not, they do not sound like any of them. Whether that is good or bad, remains an unanswered question.

For those who never heard Rabbits, this could be an uneasy and uncomfortable ride. The sense might elude you completely. The band is not easily put in a box and combines in an absurd way all genres like punk, sludge, hardcore, thrash, noise, rock and metal together and mutates that to an uncompromising aural "erlebniss”. That whole gives you that great album that grabs you at your throat with a crunch and a groove! Yes, try not to sing 'Lame' during that song. Rabbits has their non-metal heart tattooed on their chest by covering songs by Spacemen 3's and Husker Du. And do you hear some Sonic Youth somewhere? That is possible… What a great follow up to their debut 'Lower Forms'!
