Cutthroat ConVention - Enemy@The Gates

Request from Doubledgescissor Records.

Cutthroat  Convention have been reviewed here before and
with this album, carry on their tradition of wilful, electronic
fuckery. Spazzy riffs make demented sounds like a robots
death cry but unlike a lot of this genre, there are real tunes
haunting the outskirts of the chaos that comes crackling
over the airwaves.

This is a band trying whatever they want, utilising samples, post-
hardcore chord structures that change with each passage in
the song structure, using almost jazzy breaks with what sounds
like a violin/sitar forced through distortion pedals to help the
schizoid tracks get to a kind of ending.

As always, have a listen and make your own mind up.

Name your price from Bandcamp
