The 2nd album from Oakland California's THE MASS further refines the band's unique brand of malevolent indie-thrash, oozing a crawling heaviness not apparent on earlier releases. Crushing, epic, and melodic... moving beyond the hyperkinetic seizures of the band's 2003 debut full length "City Of Dis" (released in January 2005), here THE MASS whip out blazing, staccato riffs and multifaceted vocal attacks that knife through complex structures and sludgy, epic elegies, as wicked saxophone melodies interweave with angular crunch and creepy nocturnal post-rock.
Like a stuttering, bat-winged Bay Area thrash metal outfit arming itself with Louisville/Chicago schooled math-thug asymmetry, pounding dirges, and fierce,evocative mutant jazz flourishes while lobbing some whopping bonged-out grooves. THE MASS continues to evolve its cryptic heaviosity.
THE MASS are on tour now in the US, with plans for another European tour and more US dates are in the planning stages. You find the US-dates here!
