UNHOLY TWO: Cut the Music (I Am the Nightstalker): 7”

Nov 27, 2012

I’ve seen this band a handful of times live and they’ve never sounded in person like this record does to me now. This offers a wall of cacophonous sound which is noisy and ugly-sounding and somewhat ‘90s-influenced while sonically bringing to mind bands like Clockcleaner, Drunkdriver, and the Brainbombs, both in musical chops and lyrical subject matter. How this single differs from those bands is, dare I say, that there is a hook in these tunes that the previous bands often lack. Now, that’s not to say that you’ll be humming these two songs while in the shower or anything (unless you’re a total weirdo), but there is definitely a noisy, rhythmic musicality that runs throughout. Recommended.
