Editorial Reviews

"That's the most intense fear and feeling when you go to a show and you're actually scared," says Oliver Ackermann, guitarist and frontman of Brooklyn trio A Place To Bury Strangers.

"Or you can palpably feel the danger in the music," adds bassit Dion Lunadon, "Like it's going to fall apart at any moment and the players doing it are so in the moment they don't give a s**t about anything else. They're just going for it. It's a gutter kinda vibe; everything about it is icky and evil and dangerous."

The same could be said the band s fourth album, Transfixiation. Rather than fixate on the minute details like they may have done in the past, the group, rounded out by drummer Robi Gonzalez, trust their instincts and try to keep things as pure as possible. Music is much more exhilarating when it's unpredictable even on repeat plays, and this is very much an unpredictable record. Gonzalez makes his recording debut with the band here, and it s obvious that he s helped pushed the band s recordings closer to the level of their infamous live shows.

Format: Audio CD
The 4th album from this dangerous band out of Brooklyn is dark & aggressive with ominously tension-building bass lines and metallic-screech lead riffs over voices that promise mystery and despair. It’s an unholy cohabitation of razor-sharp distortion, power and noise that—rather than ignoring the melody—pummels it with a rhythmic blast of terror sounds, which sometimes devolve into cacophony that only a deaf demon could love. “Transfixiation” has both moments of brilliance and moments of self-indulgent abrasiveness. The whole album has a frantic sense of uneasy trepidation and twisted fun that leaves the listener constantly on edge and bouncing around the room like a freaked-out superball. Something like Joy Division on acid-laced speed partying with Pharmakon and the Cramps.

I bought it on pre-order . I don't know how they do it but in the 5 albums they made they always are just as good if not better than their last . This one is on point . Perfect blend of shoegaze and noise . Pretty catchy riffs but what makes it that good is they're original about it . I was turned onto these guys about 4 years ago and they've evolved into one of my top 10 favorite bands ever . EVERY song is good . Not many bands can do that .

A good album, but I didn't like it as much as Exploding Head or Worship. The wall of noise seems a bit more restrained on this release.
