Amoeba Review

07/06/2016

Big Business is what rock should be: destructive, loud, and intense. With rumbling bass guitars, tribal drums, and singing that feels closer to chanting, the result is a perfectly strange mix of West African chanting and metal. Returned to their original form, the ruthless duo of Jarred Warren and Coady Willis strip everything away for their brief, but sonically oppressive fifth album. Warren's bass is powered through so many pedals that it starts to resemble the energy and dynamics of ten electric guitars, while Willis uses a series of bells among his steady percussion that adds strange harmonics and dissonance. Under the microphones of Dave Curran, the overwhelming layers of sound create an almost claustrophobic situation sculpted from a flat, heavy production. Taking a view on mechanical dehumanization, the album's themes are just as heavy as the songs. "Father's Day"'s violent guitar riffs sound like Black Sabbath processed through a wood chipper. The ironic lyrics feel like they might've been written by a crazy person, especially against the endless bass riff that doesn't give you a single second to relax. For fans of The Melvins and Sleep, look no further for your dosage of weird and metal.
