Editors’ Notes

The Toronto duo Death from Above 1979 might have you wondering why guitars are even necessary, but chances are you’ll be so distracted (neck cranking away like a possessed bobblehead doll, filthy sneakers grinding their effluvia into some unlucky floor) that you’ll be too busy to form the actual thought. Sebastien Grainger’s combative drumming and strangled yelp (tempered with occasionally seductive crooning) give Jesse Keeler’s fat and fuzzy bass plenty of space to thrash and spit, sounding like a metal guitar riff machine on some tracks (“Turn It Out,” “Going Steady,” “Cold War”) and a scarily rabid bass guitar on others (“Blood on Our Hands,” “Little Girl”). Mostly the tone is debauched and unleashed, rhythmic and relentless, feeling like the most base heavy metal tropes filtered through a postpunk sieve—any necessary nuggets cast aside to avoid slowing the flow. Occasional tunes feel like mid-period Led Zeppelin (“Blood on Our Hands” and “Black History Month” have faint traces of Physical Graffiti), and the hilarious “Sexy Results” is a funky, DFA Records–flavored slab of swagger rock.

Customer Reviews

Majorly Rocking

At the suggestion of a friend, I bought this, but I kept taking forever to get around to giving it a full listen. At times, they remind me of Spoon, who rock a lot, and the album is nice and full-sounding. Noisy as hell, too. They also win points for use of FRIGGIN' COWBELL, the most underused instrument in the Drum Arsenal. In short, in a cage match between Death From Above 1979 (numbering 2, in total) and any number of other current rock bands, Death From Above 1979 would leave the ring wearing the skins of their opponants as Ed-Geinian jackets and socks. And I would pay top dollar to see that battle go down.

Think Different....

These cats are different indeed. If your a fan of Queens of the Stone Ages, or Clutch, check'em out. Very heavy bass, very fuzzy, and very all out rock. Get the head right and enjoy these sonically sound tunes!

Formed: 2000 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The high-energy, high-volume duo Death from Above 1979 made an immediate splash upon their debut in 2004 with You're a Woman, I'm a Machine. Bassist/synth player Jesse F. Keeler and drummer/vocalist Sebastien Grainger both hailed from Toronto, where they met and formed Death from Above in 2001. (The "1979" tag was added later, following a legal spat with the U.S.-based music collective DFA.) Without a guitarist — or any other bandmember for that matter — Keeler and Grainger were free...
