I love how you can tell what something is going to sound like just by glancing at the artwork. So, this new release from Going Off, a band I’m not that familiar with – but I’m going to say definitely hardcore? Oh good lord yes.
Under The Western Heel splices in some of the hardest, challenging, and chaotic slabs of menacing, and altogether fun-packed moments of frantic, sweat-soaked punk rock and walls of alienating, challenging noise.
This is like being set on fire and running through a paper factory, it’s absolutely chaotic, frenzied, guttural hardcore spliced with the most extreme moments of scything death metal, sprinkled with a flavour of mathcore deviance.
Goddamn, let’s get some riffs going, shall we? Robot Death Monkey, one of the finest exports from Scotland are back with a killer new EP of songs, focused on tripping major balls, Asgardian gods, dragon private parts and those huge mammoth things from Tatooine.
It’s safe to say, Edinburgh’s Robot Death Monkey really do not take themselves seriously. Drinking strong lager, riffs, and being the finest stoner-groove machine in the land seems to be their reason for existing and fair play to them.
