The Locust : Plague Soundscapes (2003)

Rating: 5/5 Stars
Grindcore and analog synthesizers: two great tastes that taste grate together. Given that Plague Soundscapes has 23 songs clocking in a pube's length over 21 minutes - each track overstuffed with cessant shrieking, uzi-fire drumming, ocomotive guitars and deranged synthesizer ursts - nobody's getting the Locust confused with Simple Plan anytime soon. Instead of mining the same boo-scary goth-rock intros seemingly used by every underground metal unit, Joey Karam makes his electronics squirm and twitch brilliantly, ushering new possibilities into the genre via the bands spiracles.
This reviewer still ponders whether there's some deeper sociopolitical meaning behind a song called "Late For Double Date With A Pile Of Atoms In The Water Closet." Perhaps it's text from some obscure Situationist tract - or from a home enema kit. Alternative Press (Jason Pettigrew)
