Unsane - _Occupational Hazard_
(Relapse, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Noise-mongers Unsane have been dishing out their dirty, fuzz-filled garage rock for the past ten years. _Occupational Hazard_ continues on in the same vain as their past efforts, masking melody with distortion and signaling out groove with humongous riffs. Batten down the hatches kids, as there is some serious noise battles going on here with _OH_. Hostility pours from the harsh vocals of Chris Spencer as Unsane let loose a mixed bag of goodies. Though repetitive at times, this LP makes a good point of keeping things simple but remarkably heavy. This is like a brick to the head most of the time. As for the future of these veterans, this band (possibly unknown to the younger music audience) will surely do well amongst the crowd that have been drawn in by such acts as The Melvins, Neurosis and even Entombed. Noise-filled garage rock never sounded so good.
