Crusty German noise rock trio Volt's nine-track endeavor is a cheeky interpretation of the early '90s NYC underground scene, as tracks like "Volt" and "Frommbug" suggest a love of all things Helmet and Jesus Lizard. Abrasive yet tuneful with a hint of the frantic funk of Primus, RORHAT repeatedly delivers highlight-worthy punches to the head, the merger of early Clutch, trippy Faith No More, and noise rock's anti-everything else getting naked and fucked up in the middle of nowhere. Off-centered and unorthodox, Volt's artistic expression of aggression stands out far above the pack.
