Årabrot are named after a rubbish dump somewhere in their homeland of Norway. Pretty apt really, as even by today's standards, Årabrot's noise-rock is seriously nasty. Moving away from the slightly more tangible Jesus Lizard influence evinced on their great debut album "Proposing A Pact With Jesus" to a more full-on, relentless, deranged din that's almost completely atonal, Årabrot still manage to make things rock in a conventional manner while jamming in more than enough nice twists. The stuck pig vocals just add further to the strung-out vibe this tough album has.
