Amoeba Review

09/25/2018

With a band name like Gouge Away, you might instantly have a strong inkling as to who they sound like. Yet the only thing Gouge Away share with the Pixies (and their famed “Smells Like Teen Spirit” prototype) is their unhinged intensity, seemingly able to go off the rails at any moment. Gouge Away keep up that intensity throughout the duration of Burnt Sugar, and even when they’re not spraying vitriol like a flamethrower over blasts of dissonant hardcore, slower songs such as “Ghost” are still able to punch with just as much weight. Guitars are drenched in brittle distortion, drums alternate between loud and really loud, and the bass has that beefy, trebly sound inherent to those late '80s/early '90s noise rock pioneers such as Killdozer, Nomeansno, and The Jesus Lizard. If any of those particular reference points strike home, then Gouge Away should be your new favorites in that proud lineage of uncompromised attitude and volume. Burnt Sugar will knock you on your ass, so embrace the blow.
