Album Review

Quicksand forge out a dense, metallic grind that sounds like a more streamlined version of Fugazi. The band's debut, Slip, relies more on metal than punk, but that makes the music all the more effective — the group's attempts at punky fury simply aren't as strong as their brutal, gut-level heavy riff-rockers. Vocalist Walter Schreifels spews out enough angst-ridden lyrics, but what is important is how his voice fits into the dense wall of sound. Quicksand's music is about powerful anger, and the persistent, bludgeoning Slip delivers the goods.

If you like Thrice you must buy this record. Thrice wouldn't exist if it weren't for bands like Quicksand, Orange 9mm, Barkmarket, and Far.

This is the most overlooked album of the 90s. Quicksand's heavy and often distorted sound was completely unique, but was regularly compared with Fugazi, Helmet and Tool. I truly believe that the passage of time has not diluted the strengh of this album one bit and they probably influenced every band you listen to today.

One of the greatest rock albums ever.
