LOW PLACES:
Spiritual Treatment: 12” EP
There seems to be a buzz building for this band, though I think it’s premature. Having seen them live and listening to this record, I think they have what it takes, but aren’t quite there yet. Musically, they’re on the heavy and noisy side of things. The instrumental, “Opfer,” is a slow, dirgey hulk of sound: repetitive riffs that border on hypnotic, with distortion bleeding in and out of every crack. The first half of “Controlled Chaos” is a ripper, then they lose it on the second when they go for the slower, punishing side. What they really should have stayed clear of was covering Neanderthal’s “Crawl.” It lacks the low end and venom of the original. Low Places are at their strongest playing their originals and when they go for the speedier side, as that’s where their music has more power and a near-painful punch. –Matt Average (A389, a389records.com)
