US - Washington - Full Moon 110 - 09/18/05
The Fall of Troy
Sony Music Entertainment Inc.
What this Washington trio's sophomore effort lacks in hooks they makes up for in enacting nuclear holocaust in forty minutes. They live up to their former name (Thirty Years War) and then some with some primal cannabilistic stereo explosion of Wolf Eyes and the kind of hardcore/screamo marketability Thrice wish
they had. They spend a lot of Doppelanger in name-dropping and searching for a thrashterpiece, and in the process make punk into the new metal like a rabid Incubus on crack. A lot less showcase and a little more fun factor and they'll have it.
