Somewhere between grindcore and cock rock, irony and sincerity, brute strength and smart-ass charm is coulier. After a year and a half of line-up changes and a significant creative shift, Athens, Georgia's most over the top power trio presents to the public their debut full length. Unafraid to pay homage to their guitar hero roots, dueling guitarists Adam Newman and Brion Kennedy rarely shy from an opportunity to engage in an Iron Maiden style harmony or a squealing pinch harmonic. Drummer Navid Amlani (ex camaro crotch!) keeps the the duo grounded with a furious mix of rhythms ranging from heavy to heavier. The whole mix is tempered with a liberal smattering of jarring time changes and dizzyingly mathy breakdowns. Vocals for the most part have been abandoned because they would have gotten in the way.
