Knelt Rote "insignificance" LP
Parasitic Records/Forest Records
Jesus fucking christ. Best band in the Pacific Northwest right now is Knelt Rote. Equal parts harsh noise and grindcore that is delivered like locusts in your brain. I am so pleased to own this record. Three epic tracks that constantly evolve in ways that make other bands kinda feel like assholes. Super heavy vocals, really tight drums and excellent playing from both guitar and bass. It's almost perfect. The noise fits perfectly with the music and is done with total mastery. Gordon from Oscillating Innards does the noise and sings so you know that part is going to be good. Rumor has it that he is going to start playing guitar as well as singing and handling noise. I worry that live it may hold back how intense they are if Gordon is anchored to an instrument; Gordon brings absolute violence as a front man. Although with this band's high taste level I think they are going to create something brilliant again. Get this record.
