SAY BOK GWAI: Chink in the Armor: CD

Oct 06, 2008

An erratic affair from this duo that melds punk, thrash, metal and everything in-between. For some weird reason, the music puts me on edge and a rush of anxiety washes over me. It’s a level of aural discomfort that is disturbing in a way. Vocals that reach an extreme level of snottiness is what stands out here. The music has that recorded live in the studio feel. This band reminds me of a cross of Stukas Over Bedrock and the Dead Kennedys on a bag of mushrooms in the hot desert sun. This band definitely is not playing it safe and trying to fit inside the box.
