cattle' S/T ended up being one of my favorite noise rock EPs, an EP that was brought to my attention pretty early on during the year. This year's Irk-Bread and Honey feels like a solid contender to repeat such a trend.
Bread and Honey has a ton of passion. The vocalist is always giving 100%, whether boasting until hoarse or speak singing in a manner like the vocals on Satanized-Technical Virginity or Daughters-Hell Songs. Occasionally the bass falls into a sludgy rift or backing track, but usually it is at the forefront with its overdriven sound with funky undertones.
Earlier this year I heard Bardus-Solus (2013). While also a great album, Irk take a very similar sound and perfect it. Given that the EP is short, I will keep my review the same way.
Expect more great stuff from these guys and stream the album Here.
