HARDWARES

RETOX

YPLL

(Epitaph)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.0

Justin Pearson has spent a good couple decades as an underground agitator (and also a Jerry Springer prankster: YouTube it), operating primarily in hardcore circles (see: STRUGGLE, SWING KIDS, SOME GIRLS, THE LOCUST), but crossing over into noisier extreme territory with his projects, case in point RETOX supporting THE MELVINS on a recent tour. And here, the band lays down what Pearson more or less has made a name for himself doing: noisy, discordant, angular, crashing hardcore, confrontational and ugly in ways that bring to mind FAITH NO MORE at their career-ruining best or THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN in 2013. Tunes like 'Soviet Reunion' prove there's some catchiness to be found amongst the chaos, though (which is also why bands like Faith No More and Dillinger are as great as they are.) As is a Pearson staple, this album clocks in at a brief 22 minutes, but with music this screamy and frantic, that's plenty. The combination of grinding punk, noise-rock-on-speed, and electronic noise interludes will have even the most seasoned metalhead running for cover after about 18 minutes, which is high praise indeed.
