Ten Volt Shock - 78 hours (2010)

Some fantastic post-hardcore on show here.

On guitar and vocals is Frank Otto from the
German band "Kurt", so you kinda know the fine
sounds you are gonna hear.

This has the best rumbling bass sound since early
Motorhead crossed with JJ Burnel and the drumming
hits harder than a drunken step-father beating up his
ginger haired teenage son.

Plenty of inventive riffing going on, giving each song
a noise-rock template from which the vocals can go
into full David Yow frenzy.

In fact, if you like Jesus Lizard, give this a listen.

Big thanks to Elementary Revolt for turning me onto
this band.
