Crom-Tech, "Wemcraftor:Limsniffer [• 12 a wixot as Q off the Rolltarp •]"
Two-man stylings from a parallel universe. Mick Barr, in advance of his current "avant-metal" conceits, churns finely wrought post–post-hardcore, pushing every limit. The words mean nothing, but there's more frenzy and just pure release than anywhere in the Orthrelm–Octis–Ocrilim family, which can give off a Guitar Center veneer of noodleage. Almost a song, but not.
