clocking in at a succinct 40 minutes, this is arguably the most focused recording of the band’s career - a mighty slab of superlative sonics, shot through with all the band’s inimitable signposts & touchstones.

huge unison riffage, savage noise/drone, oscillating overtones, guitar vs. string counterpoint, inexorable crescendos & scorched earth transitions are all present but what is noticeably missing (although to be honest, not lacking) are the quieter moments that build between these onslaughts. GYBE has gradually distilled their new work down to a fastidious & uncompromising essence in the studio - an exhilarating immersion in the harmonic power of massed amplified instruments & some of the most visceral & unalloyed noise/drone the band has yet committed to tape. if you enjoyed the recent albums from a place to bury strangers or hey colossus, this one's for you! “as devastatingly effective as ever” - GUARDIAN, "enduring glory" 8/10 - uncut.
