Cold Night For Alligators: Course Of Events
Scandic techies not quite ready to tip the scales
With that moniker you’d expect these Danes’ debut album to pack plenty of bite and aggression, and they certainly possess the requisite savagery.
Unfortunately what they lack is the quiet, stalking dynamism of an attacking reptile. Opener Considering Catastrophy rides along on a polyrhythmic low-end riff that could crush buildings, with sharp bursts of techy widdling, but the mood, pace and feel of the album barely changes until fourth track, Inconsistent. Unfortunately, it’s a fairly unremarkable mix of forced clean vocals, ho-hum staccato guitar licks and those omnipresent Dillinger-esque jazzy freak-outs.
