Take a moment to look at the band name, the album title and the ridiculous artwork. When you are finished analyzing what you see, please tell me how you cannot be intrigued? It was recently brought to my attention that Baltimore based noisy aberrations Sexgender exist and need to be heard. Sexgender’s platform is all about promoting sexual freedom, gender role awareness and completely visceral, psychotic noise. Their seven track, eighteen minute debut, Transgenital, is a short but sweet little bastard of heart failure triggering noise rock.
After listening to their debut release, 2007’s Centralia, I knew that Car Bomb was on to something special. Their rhythmically complex and psychologically devastating brand of heavy music is something you have to experience for yourself to believe. Car Bomb’s deconstructed, chopped and screwed instrumentation combined with psychotically eccentric vocals are the band’s essential tools to make them stand out among the rest. Car Bomb released their long awaited sophomore record, w^w^^w^w earlier this year and was met with a enormous amount of positive praise, as it should. I recently caught up with guitarist Greg Kubacki to get the scoop on the new record and the band’s endeavors.
