Albums Of The Week: Fucked Up | Oberon EP

Toronto's punk iconoclasts wade deep into the sludge for this punishingly heavy EP.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Oberon is a pummeling curveball from Fucked Up, channelling the world of hardcore that birthed them. It has despotic and horrendously sludgy riffs exploding in octaves lower than Hades, crashing against hellish bellowing — all while the rhythm section heaves at a pace that only Noothgrush, Crossed Out, Kiss it Goodbye and Bloodlet would tread upon. Topped off with an absolutely despicable cover of Saint-Saens’ The Aquarium, this is the mythologically psychedelic sludge record you never thought Fucked Up would make. Four tracks of pure audio excretion.”
