Holy shit! Agoraphobic Nosebleed actually made a record! This isn’t another group of 50 or so 20-second-long songs. Agorapocalypse is a “record” record with actual songs, choruses, bridges, solos and the whole nine yards. This is new, but not totally unexpected after the Domestic Powerviolence split LP with Apt. 213. That material sounds similar to the new album.
Scott Hull is a musical genius. Agorapocalypse is the most advanced and complex of the ANb material. It’s simultaneously traditional and iconoclastic; not that Hull did this all by himself. Richard Johnson dropped some bass nonsense; as opposed to base nonsense, which is something else entirely. All of the ANb vocalists sound good on Agorapocalypse but J. Randall really brings it on this one. If you’re a No Funeral regular, I don’t even have to tell you how highly this is recommended.
