Acid or Blood (Southern)
by Scott Hefflon
Another spastic, feedback-laden howlfest by a band that knows how to do it well. No art-school posers here, just AmRep noise-mongers who know Mr. Bungle and Melt Banana and Swans, also DK and perhaps some of the clusterfuck Dillinger Escape Plan/Converge metal bands that suck a little less than most. If you think dangerous rock is a thing of the past, you’re an idiot. Check out Racebannon, realize your head has been up your ass for as long as you can remember, then check out every band they’ve every played with. It’ll change your life. And let’s face it, your life is pathetic.
