Cor : Is this organized musical chaos? Anyway, this certainly is LOUD and can be experienced as quite chaotic at times. Still, it's very obvious this music is made by technical talented musicians; quite often some parts remind me of bands like Firehose and Masters Of Reality. The monotone vocal lines, dissonant elements and combination of rippling grunge and walls of straight noise are not that easy consumable for everyone, but musical craftsmanship and expression cannot be denied. Despite (or maybe even due to) the direct and raw forward production, all influences mentioned in the info, from grunge, noise, and punk to stoner rock can be clearly recognised. The three (!) guys from Zurich will probably never really rise from the underground circuit, but hey, bands like Mudhoney, Melvins, and the earlier mentioned Firehose were (and still are) truly famous in that underground circuit. A very decent piece of work which could be highly appreciated by a selective audience.
