"Rorhat" (Exile on Main Stream; 2007)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Crusty German noise rock trio Volt's nine-track endeavor is a cheeky interpretation of the early 90s NYC underground scene, as tracks like "Volt" and "Frommbug" suggest a love of all things Helmet and Jesus Lizard.
Abrasive yet tuneful -- with a hint of the frantic funk of Primus -- "Rorhat" repeatedly delivers highlight-worthy punches to the head with its merger of early Clutch, trippy Faith No More, and noise rock's anti-everything else getting naked and fucked up in the middle of nowhere.
Off-centered and unorthodox, Volt's artistic expression of aggression stands out far above the pack.

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.
