about

Custodian/Gnawed - Loathsome
Total Midwest violence. The rhythm strikes like shotgun blasts against a sheet metal wall. Each slug penetrates, causing the whole to shudder and reverberate…leaving a splash of splayed metal as its exit wound. Piles of scrap metal are elevated and then dropped. Bulldozers plow over and spread the waste. Crumpling and twisting the remnants. Throughout, vocals accuse and berate. At times distant and cavernous, at times direct and focused. Immediate…warbling with disgust. They represent the moment where one becomes so consumed with rage that he or she cannot even fathom how he or she arrived at such a state, and cannot see any hope of de-escalation. The moment is sustained…protracted into a tense layer of shimmering hate. This is easily one of the best collaborative splits I have heard in ages. The strengths of each artist are amplified to the point that the synergistic potency threatens to tear apart the very fibre of the release. It’s as true today as it was when Drop Bass said it in the early-90s: Do not fuck with the Midwest.
-The Third Of The Storms
