11. Indian, 'From All Purity'

These Chicago venom-spitters are a phenomenal noise band in metal clothing. Contemporary blackened-doom serves as a launching point for the quartet to cycle through all sorts of Eighties and Nineties pigmuck-fugliness: the punching-bag repetition of early Swans but drowning in white noise and black-metal screeches, the lurch of Neurosis as if remixed by Bastard Noise, a vintage Amphetamine Reptile scuzz-rock banger that eventually unravels into oscillating glop and a four-minute feedback workout with Whitehouse-style screams.
