Weekend Nachos "Worthless" (2011) [Relapse Records]

Weekend Nachos; a band I have heard about for quite sometime and a band name I absolutely despise. Probably part of the reason I have not listened to them until recently. As always, never judge a book by its cover, or a band by its name. Raging powerviolence/grind with an odd flair for mixing in doom/sludge. A unique combination? Definitely. Now that WN is on Relapse, its only a matter of time before they are far more popular than they currently are.

The powerviolence sections are fast, furious and unrelenting. The doomier sections are slow, crushing and heavy as can possibly be. Barked screams and lunch lady-styled vocals are abound. The production is thick, dirty and HEAVY. Kudos for WN for down-tuning as much as they do, it makes their riffing all the more heavy. Worthless is not pretty or looking to win the world over, it is here to smash and devastate.

Nothing here will convince non-pv/grind fans to switch teams, but for those who appreciate the style, you will have your head blown off. Rage!
