Haaz - Andra


Haaz play noise rock/post-hardcore - their own tag

of "indie noise rock" does not do justice to the explosion of power,

aggression and raw slabs of sonic destruction that emerge when

the play button is pressed.


Dark rumbling bass which sounds like it is played through a

distortion pedal or just turned up fucking loud mixes with the

pounding drums to produce the platform from which the fuzzed up,

on the edge-of-constant-feedback guitars can riff off. Ah man,

the riffs in the songs are groove ridden monsters that make me want

to break things while laughing like a maniac. Such evil joy and

wanton glee are in the tunes - they lodge deep in your brain and

make other music seem dull and insipid.


Crooning, shouting, yelling - the vocals sound like David Yow

performing under the influence of un-tested drugs, ranting about

self loathing with the world and maybe oneself.


The entire sound is deep, sludgey but with the uncomplicated

song passages that contains all I love about noise rock. So

much denseness is contained in these 10 tracks that when this

album stops, the silence seems almost deafening.
