Brainoil
Brainoil LP (clear vinyl) (Life is Abuse)

By: Jeb Branin

This LP is so intense that only those with leather eardrums can survive it. After releasing a free-over-the-internet demo, an extremely rare and collectable split 7" with IRON LUNG, and an earth-cracking split CD with CRUEVO; this Bay Area trio has finally unveiled their debut LP. Any and all expectations (and from me there were many) have been exceeded. This is easily the best sludge album so far this year. BRAINOIL are maniacal riff merchants. The sound waves they create literally have a tangible and physical presence, you more than hear them; you feel them. Hell, you can almost taste them and smell them. More driving and rapid (all things being relative) than most of their tar coated peers, BRAINOIL are likely to have a broader appeal than most bands of their breed. Only a fool would pass up this album.
