The Great Terror was recorded and mixed by the band and features contributions from drummer Dale Crover (Melvins/Nirvana) and  Toshi Kasai (Melvins), working collaboratively as "DEAF NEPHEWS", and guest vocals by Berlin/London based performer Suki Osman.

This is an album full of jarring dischord entwined with melodic interludes and percussive disarray, they have previously been described as "Disconcerting and indescribable post-Kraut mayhem from Hell's own art school" by Classic Rock magazine, which is also a fitting description for this, the follow up to their self-titled debut.

It sure is a strange one! so many different elements and styles that its hard to nail down, some could be indie rock, some could be gothic rock, others like an early Mudhoney whilst echoes of Portishead lurk within.

I suggest you track it down if you like odd experimental and challenging music.

Rating 8/10

For Fans Of : John Zorn, Radiohead, Merzbow
