genghis tron Dead Mountain Mouth (LP, £12.95)label: Lovepump United
Originally released in 2006, ‘Dead Mountain Mouth’ is a ferocious and unnervingly innovative record - a relentless cacophony of the huge metal riffs and ambient electronics that have earned Genghis Tron worldwide acclaim. Upon its release, ‘Dead Mountain Mouth’ was named one of the top records of 2006 by Decibel, Exclaim and Rock Sound. It’s a landmark record for the band who have since gone on to sign to Relapse Records and tour with a diverse array of acts, including Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faint, Baroness and Converge. “[Genghis Tron’s] music is a record shop in a blender, and the juxtapositions are giddy, energetic, and smart” - The New York Times; “Fluid, urgent and unpredictable, this is the sound of a band who are about ten steps ahead of everyone else right now... 5/5” - Kerrang; “These guys pack more in a minute than almost anyone else out there. Pyrotechnic blastbeats vanish before you know it, making way for electronic breaks and blessed synth passages as compelling as they are familiar” - Philadelphia Weekly.
