Somewhat of a hardcore supergroup, featuring ex-dudes from Anodyne, Lickgoldensky and probably loads more, Versoma (formerly Matamoros, presently disbanded) played an interesting but not overly memorable blend of My Bloody Valentine-esque wall-of-noise straightforward rock together with some harsh shouty hardcore stuff. The conflict between the two styles creates an interesting and impressively voluminous mix much of the time, but the essential differences can work against each other, with the band trying to build up atmospherics within a mercilessly concise musical framework. This is nevertheless an interesting effort.
