GEISHA Mondo Dell'Orrore CD

Damn, part of me almost wants to use the word “revival” when I speak on this— flippin' the package to make sure an AmpRep logo isn't on this at all. Grit covered anger with vocals so buried under the blood-flecked guitars they might as well be non-existent. At first one would be almost tempted to write this trio off as way-johnny-come-latelys with the dated fuzzy production, but then something happens. The songs open up and the individual parts become clearer, less fixated on burying you with noise ala The Unsane and offering you a sludgier sound that seems to be several degrees more successful than the hardcore noise rock approach. The brutality takes on an almost melodic touch that builds on the noise instead of just throwing you against a wall with it. They aren't breaking any new ground, but hell, a little nostalgia doesn't hurt. [Crucial Blast]
