Line of the Best Fit give GNOD's Chapel Perilous a 8.5/10 review

They say:

Gnod have never felt more vital than on Chapel Perilous

For those that have been following the band for some time, thinking about Gnod as a static concept is a genuine struggle. Members have dropped in and out, and their progression as a band has been that of constant evolution, mutating from one post-rock/hardcore record to the next.

The Salford act’s release last year, Just Say No The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine, was a genuine feat, highly charged with political fury, and is widely considered their magnum opus. Tracks such as ‘’Stick In The Wheel’’ are standout gems in the Gnod songbook, and the album as a whole was a real signal of their intent.

Chapel Perilous, the Salford quartet’s latest release, is a masterclass in going as direct and disturbing as possible over the course of only five tracks. The name itself comes from a book by Robert Anton Wilson, Cosmic Trigger, referring to a state where the supernatural and the real converge. This meeting of two separate states is clearly reflected in both the recording of the album, comprised during a series of sessions where the band felt free to perform as they wished and so pushed boundaries previously unexplored, as well its haunting outcome...

'rock-station.over' gives Anthroprophh's OMEGAVILLE a 9/10 review

They say:

MY SPRING: I had to go back several times to write the name of the Group correctly and I still can not pronounce it the first time but no matter, only the Music is important and at this level, I I was not disappointed by the Trio from Bristol. "Omegaville" is a real UFO Musical, completely barred and totally crazy, without tail or head but in the end, we become completely addict! Moreover, this Punk Punk salad reminds me of the craziest works of the filmmaker Takashi Miike, "Ichi the Killer" and "Visitor Q", totally inaccessible for the common people but of a formidable intensity if we make the effort (a big effort) to take an interest in the artist!  9/10

BEST TITLE: "Housing Act 1980"
