Long-running Arizona metal act Gat-Rot unleashes its latest affair, an uncompromisingly vicious and utterly unsettling 10-track entity aptly titled US VERSUS THEM. Melding the intensity of VOD and the soul-crushing brutality of most metalcore bands on the scene today with the fist-pumping anthemic goodness of Downset and muscled-up funk of Rage Against the Machine, tracks like the punishingly heavy “Is This The End” methodically beat your ears into submission. Cranking out a barrage of stunning array of chugging guitars, decimating rhythms, and vocals that sound as if Satan himself was fronting the microphone, this disc doesn’t break any ground, but will absolutely break windows in your ‘hood, as it was made with the intent to be played at maximum volume without any sense of remorse.
