MOTTOW SOUNDZ

Bel­gium’s noise rock god­fa­thers are back and blaz­ing

On their first al­bum in over 20 years, La Muerte sound very much up for liv­ing up to their ‘the Popes of the Bel­gian un­der­ground’ ep­i­thet as they build on re­cent post-re­u­nion EPs Evil and Mur­der Ma­chine, and drag their amor­phous, noise rock bar­rage into ever more dis­ori­en­tat­ing ter­ri­tory. At times it’s mon­strously heavy, as on the stately, thud­ding sprawl of Lost. At oth­ers, it’s just de­mented; LSD For The Holy Man sounds like an overly med­i­cated Elec­tric Wizard cov­er­ing The Stooges in a wind tun­nel. Mean­while, the spec­tre of The Birth­day Party places the likes of Crash Baby Crash firmly on the right side of wrong. Lis­ten to this suf­fi­ciently loud and a re­li­gious ex­pe­ri­ence is guar­an­teed.

FOR FANS OF: The Stooges, Evil Bliz­zard, Un­sane
