Album Review

Hill, Zach and Barr, Mick – Shred Earthship – [5RC]

Numa   5/22/2006   A Library, CD

Absolute Fucking Chaos. Zach Hill gives you a beating while Mick Barr dances on your tympanic membrane. The album title suits the sound well, the shredding guitar work from Mick Barr brawls with the earth-shaking percussion of Zach Hill. The toms of Zach Hill kit are tuned low, almost as if he has 3 different kick drums, causing the snare to strike you like a viper. Mick Barr’s guitar work is relentless. Working up and down the neck like a man possessed. The first album by this pairing, but they have worked with many bands separately. Zach Hill has worked with Cex to The Ladies, but is most known for his drumming with Hella. Whereas Mick Barr has work with many bands, more recently with Octis, Orthrelm, and Quix*o*tic. With over 77 minutes on this recording, I recommend it in small doses, unless you are looking to have a meltdown. — Numa
