uSSSy - Oko (2010)

In the same vein as Lightning Bolt, these Russian
guys are playing some fucked up instrumental
noise rock.

A bit more tuneful perhaps but still a dense wall
of sound that assaults the senses with feedback
guitar, heavy bass and pounding drums.

The more I play it, the more I doubt my ears -
am I hearing subtle riffs behind the background
chaos or is the sheer fuzziness and distortion
that is confusing me?

There are also elements of eastern scales and
some sort of ethnic stringed instrument that drifts
in and out that sounds like snippets from the
soundtrack of "Doctor Zhivago"
