Back To Back - Narcissist


Info

After a debut EP on Lockin Out Records the Houston boys return. It doesn't have to be difficult, and it doesn't have to be new. It does, however, have to be right, and that's where BACK TO BACK excel. The record's opener is just so brutally deliberate...so damned confident, and the 90 seconds of "Isolate Me" pack more hooks and frantic riffs than most bands would know what to do with - if you aren't moving by the end then you're probably dead. Perhaps their mission to get you moving, and perhaps they want to get under your skin just to infect you with the excruciating six minute dirge that fills the B side - two notes have rarely sounded so painful, and I would happily accept six minutes more. There are outsiders dying to get in, and then there are the outsiders who simply do not give a fukk, the ones who are doing it by and for themselves. Limited to 500 copies with die cut covers and mastered by Arthur Rizk.
