1994! – “FKYRHED” – [Square of Opposition]
Faux-math punk from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Chris on vocals/guitar, Mike on drums, and no bass, just the duo blasting out aggressive fast technical riffs, whose intricacy makes it seem like math rock. Sounds like Chris is standing far from the mic in order to shout the mostly unintelligible vocal while keeping a steady rhythm until hitting back with the riffage. Heavy punk music with math elements, yet lacking the thumping bass which some might not enjoy. I liked it because the music takes on a more personal element.
Sometimes really fast, but taking it down a couple notches on some tracks when needed. Playful yet tension building album that’s over too soon.
