Samus
Desengano (Crucial Blast)

By: Jeb Branin

Had GASP survived to release another full-length album it might have sounded something like this. SAMUS, like GASP, generate an intriguing and surprisingly listenable amalgamation of extreme music (sludge, hardcore, metal, etc) and noise (samples, electronics, rubber ducks... seriously rubber ducks). Songs range from barely one minute to over 14 minutes. On one level I would certainly have to call this "experimental" but not in the sense that it's so "out there" it can only be appreciated for its artistic merit, because on another level this is nitty-gritty, down-and-dirty extreme music that can be slapped on and listened to for its own sake. Whether your preferred flavor be MITB, GRIEF or, hell, even IRON BUTTERFLY, you are going to dig this...
