Wolf Eyes 

“Stabbed in the Face” by Wolf Eyes, from Burned Mind (Sub Pop Records):

Like death metal on heavy narcotics and dipped in axle grease, Motor City trio Wolf Eyes re-creates the ominous twisting, turning cacophony of a rotisserie ride on the demonic midway. Arrangements wind from minimalist clanging, punctuated by squawks of horn skronk and sputtering electronics, into accelerating sheets of white noise spewing sparks as they burn up on re-entry. Frontman Nate Young's vocals are a tortured, heavily distorted howl like the last human in the Matrix awakening in madness, blanketed by the hum of machinery. Founded a dozen years ago as a solo project by Young, it has grown, evolved and carpet-bombed the world with product, self-releasing dozens of albums and tapes in addition to CDs for Sub Pop and others.
