So Stressed- The Unlawful Trade of Greco-Roman Art (2015)
With The Unlawful Trade of Greco-Roman Art, So Stressed bring a much more straight-forward noise rock sound to the table. While I was hoping their follow up would move towards the more harsh and experimental, it does not. Despite immediate disappointment, So Stressed's album does manage to refine their sound into a polished, cohesive mess that is worth any noise rock fans time. Unlawful Trade showcases better instrumentation, vocals, production; everything feels refined to a fully-realized sound.
If you grew up listening to metal but have a taste for noise rock, this is a great album for you to pick up. Regardless, noise rock fans looking for a solid 2015 album should take a moment to check out their Bandcamp. Also, it is for sale on cassette, LP, and CD (I think), so support it if you like it.
