Mr. Ted could have had an album here that would rival Black Flag’s My War and Slip It In, but that would be boring. Instead we have the most absurdly stupid album that you will ever enjoy for all of the reasons. Right and wrong.
They’ve got the band name, they’ve got the song title, they’ve got the Matt Berry sample, all that’s left is a weird prog-metal concoction to bring it all together…
I don’t think I could name any post punk/jazz artists, at least that I have ever listened to. I can’t say that it is really a “genre” that I could get into, but you will want to get this little slice of it if just for the bizarre happiness within.
I have no idea if Scottish Metal is a legit thing, but if so then apparently this is it. So let’s keep up our shit hot rep that we currently have going with Scotland and check this out.
In all honesty, one reason why Cauteriser went a bit quiet is because I got bored of the constant samey doom/sludge/metally albums that just offered the same qualities for me to write about. Now this… although not too far apart by sound, is a whole other level at the same time.
Somehow the albums I have been asked to review have gone from being noisy punk and hardcore to experimental/progressive metal (and for some reason all suddenly containing 9 tracks…) 100 Years aren’t easy to categorise, but certainly sit somewhere amongst the latter.
Hands up, I was a bit hesitant about reviewing this one. I don’t tend to get along with conceptual or more progressive albums, and I had no idea how I was going to actually review something like this. I’m going for it anyway (anyone fancy reviewing my review…?)
