IN HEAT is a three-pronged alliance of unholy shredders based out of Providence, featuring members of other PVD noise terrorists like TINSEL TEETH and SIRE. They’ve been kicking around for a bit now and have two great demos under their belt, but their recent full length tape from the homeys at Bufu Records takes things to a whole new level.
Recorded with help from Kellzo of the almighty BUGS AND RATS, The Ghost Is Clear gives us IN HEAT at their very best. Tempos shift from blast beats to plodding, MAN IS THE BASTARD-style low end riffage with all the creamy middles in between that you could possibly ask for. The unconventional and decidedly non-dance-oriented use of a Roland sampler brings an unexpected depth and uneasiness to their heavy, grind-influenced distorted bass and drums attack. Throw some absolutely throat-shredding guy and girl vocals on top and what you have is some truly sick shit. The Ghost Is Clear is a release that finally comes as close as possible to matching the unhinged fury of the group’s live performances. You’ll rage, you’ll cry, you’ll probably break some shit. Get into it.
The Ghost Is Clear is available now from Bufu Records. You can check out IN HEAT with PSYCHIC TV, GUERILLA TOSS, DOOMSDAY STUDENT, CONTAINER and so many more kick-ass performances this Saturday at AS220 FOO FEST in Providence.
