"Die Verbrechen der Liebe" (Crucial Blast; 2009)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Bristol, UK troupe Geisha champion a smorgasbord of sound on their six-track sophomore affair "Die Verbrechen der Liebe."

From jumpy noise rock riffs to sludge rock rhythmic slanderings to thunderous stoner rock percussion to trip-laden extended psychedelic space rock jams, this exploratory troupe provides a dissonant post hardcore offering boldly veering into parts unknown with a dizzying swagger and hyperkinetic sense of danger in tow.

Equally at home in the spaceship or the swamp, this swirling excursion ends off on a high note with "Theme From Diana," a colossal 30-minute plus endeavor that intertwines shards of random dialogues with a shape-shifting yet raw drone metal feel and scrawls of white noise feedback to close out this intense and boundless squad's sojourn.

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.
