MILLIONS
GATHER SCATTER
SEVENTH RULE

Spastic and noisy hardcore with underpinnings of melody best describe the racket exerted by Chicago quartet Millions, whose eight-track offering GATHER SCATTER goes from the gutter to outer space in approximately 27-minutes. Emblazoned in dissonance, songs like "Saddle Up and Ride" exhibit the rhythm section playing like a wrecking crew drunkenly demolishing a skyscraper, while "Pickpocket" channels QOTSA for a shot of fretwork freakouts and "Life is Satisfactory" reveals the might of Millions' ever-shifting three-pronged vocal delivery with the sandpapered bark leading the neurotic charge. If you are partial to early post-hardcore and get misty-eyed for the noise rock days of yore, this crew has got the fix you need.
