|Fiesel: three men who've just released this EP, a
sound freak-out that's bent on blasting away your mind in an angry barrage of guitar
terror. And while that description may get you expecting a bloody grindcore band or
a dime-a-dozen death metal gorefest, you can be sure that Fiesel's up to something
Hailing from Massachusetts, the band is more indie rock than anything
else. Instead of playing in the traditional vein, though, Fiesel drops the
anaesthetic and just goes all-out on your ear drums. As a result, the six songs on
this EP are all positively explosive.
Instrumental tracks like "Autoscan" and "Action Destroys
Perfection" are fierce enough to get your brain cells hacking away at each
other. "Reservoir" and "Vicksburg," the two songs with vocals,
also manage to be magnificently powerful.
Altogether, this EP is a vicious batch of melodic guitar noise. If you want some
music to destroy things to, pick this EP up - it's a mere four dollars, postage
paid! And hold on to your hats, too, because Fiesel's new album is due out soon.
