"Birth Control" (Translation Loss; 2012)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

New Jersey noise-addled metal unit Fight Amp, now pared down to a trio, unleashes eight tracks of abrasive aggression on their latest offering, "Birth Control."

This squad has been administering a boisterous brand of confrontational sludge metal for almost a decade and shows no sign of softening up, pummeling ear holes with ruthless riffs, strained screams, and rhythms that make construction sites sound tame (“Should’ve Worn Black”).

If you crave the tones created by Melvins, Unsane, and High on Fire and wondered what a mash-up of these bands would sound like, Fight Amp has made your day that much brighter with their punishing amalgamation of fury and ferocity.

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.
