LUCIKA: Unnerving Depth of Black: CD

Jan 18, 2007

These guys mete out some heavy, gloomy sludge rock here, with lotsa sampled bits at the beginnings of their tunes and a singer who sounds like he’s gonna cough up his spleen at any moment. The sound is good ’n’ loud and, while metallic, the tunes have a decent enough groove to them, but the abrupt endings of some of the songs was a bit annoying. Sometimes, like with some of the Urinals’ stuff, that kind of gimmick works, but here it sounds like whatever idea they were running on at the time just sputtered out, so they stopped right where they were and went on to the next thing on the list.
