A horrible hack

Adebisi Shank

This Is The Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank

Year Released: 2008
Format: CD
Label: Richter Collective
Reviewed by Kunal Nandi on Jan 19, 2009
These Dublin nutters don't do singing or slow bits, instead trading in pounding rhythms, elastic basslines and guitars that explode like fireworks. If you've got their previous EP, it's pretty much more of the same math-rock with the emphasis very much on the rock, and while it's debatable whether the energy levels and variety are maintained over double the duration, you certainly can't fault their ability as a cohesive band unit. Math-rock the Casbah!
