A horrible hack

Year Released: 2008
Format: LP
Label: Crucificados - Fuck Yoga
Reviewed by Alex Deller on Mar 12, 2009
Oof, hereís one to pull your own fucking teeth out to and make no mistake: a vicious sonofabitch that sees the avant-noisemongering of San Franís Burmese going at it tooth and claw with Macedoniaís premier (arf!) doom monstrosity. Burmese first, and their one-of-a-kind drum/bass/hell/yell clatter is as hostile and unpredictable as ever, one moment spewing out ultra-fast blurts of feedback-riddled grind and sheet metal clang, the next descending into sphincter-quivering moments of blown-out electronic malevolence. Flipping the record and Potop certainly arenít onboard to up the happy stakes any, befouling the air with two sprawling offerings that stagger from one drawn-out un-chord to the next while some wretched beast shrieks up the remnants of a diseased and tortured soul by way of vocals.
