SALVATION: Year of the Fly: CD

Some mighty fine noise rock afoot here. This kinda stuff is a fine dance to do right—go too far one way and you’re in shitty rock territory, go too far the other and you’re unlistenable. This deftly dances along the knife’s edge, striking a good balance between ear damage and bobbing along to the groove via loud guitars and sludgy tempos. –Jimmy Alvarado (Forge Again, forgeagainrecords.com)
