Album Notes
Hacksaw to the Throat began as a 2-man thrash / grind band, their style evolving into a much more progressive form of extreme music as their lineup solidified. Always filled with energy and intensity, the band draws from a vast range of influences from Neurosis, Majority Rule, and Pig Destroyer to
Sigur Ros and Japanese Taiko. Their latest release, Wastelands" (2007), has been described as "a truly genre-bending masterpiece that is as beautiful as it is crushing."

crushing blow
Nicely epic compositions that keep spiralling upwards and never fall flat, powered by some insanely tight riff structures and breaks. Definitely an album burner... songs slide nicely together, and I can't stop listening once it's on.

Fans of Neurosis style post-metal AND tech-death heads will probably both be pleasantly attacked by the raw rock fueling these dudes, as long as you don't mind running to catch up with them.

Damn fine year for metal experimentation, and these folks are kicking it with the best.

Don't dance to this SHIT, you'll FUCK yourself up! VERY FAST! GOOD CD!

Shockingly Good!
The musicianship on this album is top notch. The album has so many memorable riffs. The album stays strong all the way through. The opener, Breaking Point, touches on some incredible musical ideas. Continuing through, Erebus is the next killer track for me. Following Erebus is Obsidian Sun, which was a huge shock. It is an incredible piece that you wouldn't expect from a band of this genre. Finishing off the album is Destroying the Vile Red Falcon and Whisper Perfect Lies. Both tracks are amazing. This album has no down point and no filler. I strongly recommend this album to fans of truly good music.

From where this starts, it seems appropriate to assume that this is going to be a pretty straightforward thrash/speed metal project: a band that's going to play hard and fast, throw in a few tricks here and there, and deliver the standard musical head-butt that any metal band worth their weight should be able to forcibly execute. Then you notice that the second track clocks in at over ten minutes, and none of the nine tracks here are shorter than five. The intrigue grows. Shortly after, you realize you don't even need to bother keeping track of where one song ends and another begins. There's really no point. The band keeps so much going on here that you'd only find yourself needlessly distracted. While these guys are great at playing fast and reckless metal, they're also very adept at juxtaposing it with slower, more intricate breaks and time changes, and this is where they really make their mark. The two guitars scream in stereo, racing through detailed riffs, but they know when to reign it in, and it's usually at the most unexpected moments. The vocals are fierce in their delivery but choosy in their placement, rendering them that much more powerful when they scream to be heard. Compelling but not overindulged, it's great to see bands like this push the limits of this brand of metal and really crank out some challenging, intelligent music.
