The US release of City Of Dis, the debut full length from Oakland, CA indie prog thrashers THE MASS features members of FROM MONUMENTS TO MASSES and TOTIMOSHI, delivering unto us a scalding blast of sax-assisted King Crimson-meets-Slayer art|thrash|core worship, all light-speed riffing, shrieking vox and burly singing, malevolent soft jazz,insidious tempo shifts, and bloodthirsty dynamics. Disparate elements of No Wave, damaged pop, grindcore, post-punk, thrash metal and math-rock are crafted into a blast of avant-garde fury, but catchy as fuck.Pure dissent. Recorded at Louder Studios in San Francisco with producer Tim Green (THE FUCKING CHAMPS, MELVINS, UNWOUND ). The Crucial Blast release of City Of Dis features enhanced CD-Rom video footage not available on the original European release, as well as different Digipack art and design.
