Album Review

The Sonic Union label has to be given a good deal of credit for introducing the U.S. to some of Canada's most dedicated grindcore bands; in the grand tradition of Big Black, This Apparatus presents a series of tracks so sludgy, heavy, stomping, metalesque, and generally hardcore that it's difficult not to be affected by them. What's surprising is just how good the band is at this, considering how far in this direction many rock bands have gone during the '90s — This Apparatus actually manages to make fellow Sonic Union artists the Kittens look like their name — and even more amazing, there actually seems to be a good deal of intelligence behind the album's hammering sludge.
