A.R.GH – Santiago (Bored Bear Recordings, 2010)

Posted in A.R.GH, Bored Bear Recordings by HOLIDAYS on September 2, 2010

After reviewing A.R.GH’s Abuse awhile ago, I’m grateful to able to follow it up with his most recent offerings on Bored Bear, Santiago. While I wasn’t a huge fan of Abuse, Santiago is a huge step up.

This 3″ contains 2 harsh tracks, each sounding like a distorted radio feedback frenzy that rarely takes any time to breathe. Unlike how I felt about the previous offering, these tracks a thick and full, giving all ends of my speakers a work out- not like HNW full, but pretty close, as A.R.GH style, as I said before, reminds me of more traditional harsh noise- loud and distorted to the max, but still keeping a fast dynamic throughout the entire tracks. There’s plenty of metal junk and feedback to keep any harsh head pleased with the 24 minutes offered up. And once again, I can’t wait to hear what else he has up his sleeve. Highly recommended!

Packaging is minimum- just a silver 3″CDr with some blurry, distorted artwork in a little vinyl pouch.
