"Dyse" (Exile of Mainstream; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

German duo Dyse come from the outfit Volt, so it's to no surprise for those in the know how heavy or weird this self-titled eight-track presentation is. 

Post-hardcore heft meets alternative metal quirk with enough Am-Rep jagged rhythms and deliciously pounding guitar and drum interplay to satisfy. And yeah, it gets real strange too, with oddball vocals, left of center instrumentation, and a slew of sideways approaches intertwined within the mix to give Dyse an edge that makes them truly standout amongst the pack. 

This one is for all of those who enjoy loud and crazy music that is smart, leaving indelible marks in your head as large as the welts acquired in the pit.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
