DYSE are the second band I’ve reviewed today who are rocking the pummelling punk two-piece formula, having already investigated the ‘68 record which follows a similar schtick. This pair knock out fat chunky riffs that you’d expect to hear from a quartet. It’s a bit of a mixed bag, lots of sped-up Wet Nuns-esque riffage and vocals that sound a bit like that guy from Snot who died, but also some quieter and more mathy passages, and some nice loud/quiet/loud sections as well as some creative and sometimes jazzy guitar work.
They’ve filled out their sound with various other instruments on this record, a practise which I have mixed feelings about. On one hand the orchestral touches of brass and strings certainly do give the music a powerful lift when they’re used but surely part of the point of these power duos is to explore how powerful a sound you can create without an extended cast of musicians. Nonetheless this is a heavy and surprisingly varied album of chunky bilingual power rock which in its best moments has an Unsane-like juggernaut momentum.
