No Visible Scars
Huh. I am a little bummed I took this long to review this one. It's not a perfect record but it's damn different. This is almost songs. Drum machine, vocals, guitars, bass and lots of noise make for some interesting songs. It's like Godflesh, Darkthrone, a fire alarm and a broken car engine are all falling down the side of a mountain. On fire. It's a lurching, blackened industrial metal hell pile and it's pretty awesome. It's a total mess and the noise almost completely obscures everything else but it somehow works. I may have to come back to this one again. My only beef is that this is long. I review—or at least have to review—a lot of releases and when I see a tape is pushing the c90 length I really have a hard time getting to it.
I am not a fan of the packaging. I don't mind tapes in bags—although I don't love it either—but this bag is just too damn big. The artwork is pretty cool though. Nothing mind blowing but it fits. This packaging would have prevented me from buying, which would be a shame.
It's definitely worth checking out.
