Morkobot - "Morbo" CD

Featuring solely 2 bass guitars and drums, this Italian act's raw sonic melee is surprisingly heavy and intricate. With hints of grimy noise, punk, and prog-style math rock, Morkobot's weird tunings and thick, pulsing riffs and rumbling rhythms are both frenetic and tense, reminding me somehow of an instrumental Jesus Lizard meets the Melvins. The standout here has to be "MoR", which breaks things down to a more subtle dubby, jazzy groove. (Supernatural Cat)
