RABBITS
BITES RITES
GOOD TO DIE

Portland, OR squad Rabbits scale down to a two-piece for their latest batch of dirt-ridden and carelessly serrated songs entitled BITES RITES. This nine-track affair demonstrates the disjointed and noisy style this band introduced on past album LOWER FORMS, featuring an unhinged guitar and drum performance that is so intrinsically heavy and meaty that their lack of a bassist isn’t an issue at all (“What’s Going On”). Intensified by doped-up time signature changes (“Meth Valley 99”), intentionally sloppy and seasick melodies (“Lame In Vain”) and crass choruses that beg for drunken sing alongs (“Suck It or Blow”), Rabbits summon all the unorthodox sludge metal tendencies they can muster up to create an utterly abrasive and captivatingly chaotic excursion. -Mike SOS
