‘Nother 7” from one of the most ludicrous bands around. Black Dice’s music is just really, something else, and has to be heard to be believed. Art-Noise-Violence is my haphazard attempt to pigeon hole the un-pigoen-hole-able, lets just say that this is seriously fucked up. The second “song” on the a-side sounds just like some looped chaos. It like the most vicious train-wreck ever, and it just ploughs through the station. I have no idea what the fuck they are doing, but this shit is seriously, seriously messy. If they actually play this song, then I am bewildered. The other two “songs” are noisy and weird, almost random bursts of noise with screaming over the top. No structure.

This is the sort of record you would like if you think that Combatwoundedveteran and Discordance Axis are easy listening.
