4 stars 'Koenjihyakkei' go 'Bela Bartok' crazy. At times this album is so annoying that it's funny, with its furious percussion, drumming and helter skelter vocals by females who sound like they've got a red hot poker up the jacksie.

'Angherr Shisspa' is as disordered and bonkers as their previous outings, but once again is somehow prevented from disintegrating into a puddle of sludge due to the precise drumming and confrontational bass which throbs at the forefront. The whole recording is as hard as nails, so don't expect an easy laid back affair here.

I much prefer 'Koenjihyakkei' to their other current running band 'Ruins' who sound far more stripped down and minimal unlike this cacophony.

This is definitely not one to play on a first date, that's for sure! 'Koenjihyakkei' are one of the most extreme bands you'll read about on the prog archives. They're loud, brash, concise and batter their instruments with real intention. This is one of those cd's you'll play that makes you laugh out loud or burst out crying in frustration.

Thankfully I'm of the former and I'm still laughing with eyes bulging out, like two white snooker balls protruding from my face.
