"Euphobia" (Systems Neutralizers; 2011)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

The two-woman noise metal tandem The Paranoid Critical Revolution present a 12-track disc championing all things disjointed and dissonant entitled "Euphobia."

Heavily effected guitars and jazzy percussion mix it up throughout this offering, resulting in a multitude of high-pitched squealing freakouts ("I Didn't Wake Up This Morning"), no wave hypnosis ("Loitering With Intent") and abrasive odd-timed white-noise knuckle rides ("Tour De Force Majeure").

Sounding like every appliance in your kitchen involved in a heated debate, The Paranoid Critical Revolution is a polarizing outfit for certain, yielding an unruly and evidently underground sound geared solely for the most adventurous of exploratory music fans to embrace.

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.
