Agoraphobic Nosebleed – Agorapocalypse

125779

You can (legitimately) listen to the whole album at the appropriately-named agorapocalypse.com.

I think something is lost in their transition from absurdist drum machine HATEHATEHATE to a more band-like experience, particularly the expansion out to two and three minute long tracks. The drum programming is more like a drummer and less like an angry smear; it’s quite impressive as a simulation.

I’m partial to “Hung from the Rising Sun” myself but overall I’m not too enamored thus far. It’s sufficiently angry, but is it sufficiently vapid?

    The song titles are still the same but I guess liking it hinges on how much you dig Apartment 213 and Man Is the Bastard.

    A rogue spear is a shlong that’s dangling all over the place.

    i’ve never heard apt. 213.

    You know, listening to this after Altered States… is like going from Reign In Blood to South of Heaven.
