Boomkat Product Review:
New Zealand's Die! Die! Die! recorded their first album with Steve Albini, but have no such reliance on big names for this sophomore outing. The belligerence and brutalism of this band's music is nicely undermined by a real sense of vulnerability and yearning in the voice of frontman Andrew Wilson, who humanises the cold, hard riffing that characterises the Die! Die! Die! sound, even though he does tend to sing in a markedly different key to whatever else happens to be going on in the mix. Opening cut 'Blinding' finds the band sounding like a cross between Helmet and The Pixies, representing one of the more openly melodic tracks on the album, but from here on it tends to get a little less friendly. 'Death To The Last Romantic' motors on like a Suicide recording: simple and primitive in its structure but terrorising in its execution. It's rare that Die! Die! Die! would give you much in the way of a hook to hold onto, but when they do ease off the thrash they breakdown the album's more pervasive hardcore tendencies nicely: the angular riffing of 'People Talk' being a memorable example, sounding slightly reminiscent of Nirvana.
