albinobone No one listens to this album quietly.
If you like it; you love it. If you love it, it's loud. Pulverizingly so.
You are mystified that DIAL didn't put out more music. It's that good. You've also looked that shit up online to make sure you didn't miss anything. You even checked youtube to see what this could possibly look like live. Nothing.

Some part of you wishes they would read your comments here and get the band back together.

You recently bought some Couch Slut albums. Favorite track: Always At The Border.

    The old expression "like a ton of bricks" doesn't even come close here. The weight of a mountain is what DIAL drops on you with their absolutely crushing 5-song debut EP. The austere New Zealand outfit originally self-released this as a demo, but the material contained within is leaps and bounds beyond what most bands accomplish even at their best. DIAL successfully channels the darkest corners of the AmRep catalog, the raw ferocity of classic hardcore, offtime kilter of math-rock, and the whole concept that music can actually be dangerous.

    The air-tight composure of DIAL's debut recording is striking; focusing more on space and dissonance than technical shreddery. Obscenely heavy guitars collide with bludgeoning percussion and intense, vicious and scathing female vocals... turning the whole thing into a downright terrifying experience. Add an incredibly crisp recording, and this makes DIAL's debut EP one of the most impressive demos we've heard in years, let alone had the privilege to re-release.
