Their latest transmission 'The Guillotine' marks another peak for an innovative force in the

realm of heavy amplification. Darker and more brooding than their recent work, it's also per-
haps their most richly melodic to date - the interplay of their three guitar lineup has never

sounded more fluent than on these eight songs, nor their songcraft more well-defined.

This is a record whose alchemical charge arrives from a reinvention of loud rock shapes into

forms both feral and fresh - whilst Hey Colossus can still bludgeon with overamped vigour, as

on the hypnotic and devastating krautrock-Jesus-Lizard hybrid of 'Back In The Room' they

can also deliver the haunting waltz-time serenade of 'Calenture Boy' with uncompromising

fortitude, with the new-found confidence and allure of Paul Sykes' vocals at the forefront. These menacing and immersive songs

chronicle a band exploring a unique sound and invigorating approach in a decade in which cliches and genre pieces in the realm

of the psychedelic have frequently surrounded - here the six-piece find themselves transcending the limitations of the under-
ground scene from whence they came, whilst exposing the paucity of inspiration in much of the guitar-rock mainstream.
