I was 15yrs old when i saw the Light thanks to that Unsane album covering Singles 89-92 (matador rec '92), - and especially listening over and over to My Right, a pure cathartic fire of Noise, everlasting burning, with a first scream and a distorted solo-guitar able to give me shivers at each play, forever. Pure Shining. Then, some years ago the news of vocalist/guitarist Chris Spencer (brother of more famous John, from Pussy Galore and BluesExplosion and Boss Hog, etc) beaten up by four anti-american dickheads (sorry for my french) in Vienna (and never caught by the police), left half-dead, and then the brief parenthesis with Cutthroats 9. Well, after 7 years since the past record, here They are again: rude, in anger, lost, with passion - and there is not a "normal" daily-life besides the Unsane-thing for these guys: there is a hundred-dates tour and then a recording-session for a new album. Then, touring again. So, You can easily understand why these Tracks are so hopelessly Violent. - After years spent into burning guitars under the holy sun of Noise Music (kinda dense mayem control dear to early Sonic Youth, Distorted Pony Scratch Acid..), probably going on tour with gentlemen like Slayer and Biohazard contributed to focus latest song-writing around a postmetal start-point, a different harshness, with deeper bass-lines and heavy guitars, picking up past memories of earlier experimental rancid style exclusively on a couple of tracks (Make Them Prey, Latch, D Train), drifting all the rest into the visceral, the brutal, head-chopping (ok, this is a refer to an old cover-art) the listener, left destablized. I mean, it's not easy to distinguish the track of each individual song, because Unsane keep on going on circle through the slight variations of Their well known formula since already a couple of albums, without touching the top of memorable, - but it stays that playbacking this album is like a bomb blowing out.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
