MEDICINE NOOSE delivers down tuned punk rock in it's vilest and simplest form. 90s-style sludge in the veins of GRIEF, NOOTHGRUSH and TOADLIQUOR. Musical regression caused by the omnipresent conditions of angst, despair, total self-loath and the undeniable feeling of leading a life that is barely yours.
This is a huge progression from Wound Empire in terms of density, emotion, and atmosphere. Abstracter truly found a sound which differentiates them from all the other bands in the genre. The repeating guitar riffs seem boring at first, but once you get into the underlying concept of this record it all adds up. Amazing how much effort these guys put into the design (!) of the album. I can only recommend to take proper time to learn appreciating this masterpiece. Mohemian
