8/10 Robin Staff review, 13 November 2014
“Super Ape” comes into the world like one of those punk rock songs that’s been kicked out of the club and is now falling backwards down the stairs. The chords dive forwards before chugging back with the power of a train stopping, the drums following suit and halting at the last minute. From there, psychedelic riffs tumble and swirl in the backdrop, a bit of garage rock bass straightening the song out like a tie hastily attached to a hair metal stoner. There are a lot of genre contradictions, here, but there’s no time to think about them, and so the song descends into a guitar solo that howls like a wolf at the moon. Ozzy, you hearing this? “The Snake” continues the as-you-like-it guitar assault, proving that Feral Ohms come into this world ready to die and then grasp onto something, anything. It’s a pretty good survival story.
