Fight Amp Hungry For Nothing

Fight Amp Hungry For Nothing
Few debut albums have the direct aggression and venom of Fight Amp’s Hungry For Nothing. A slightly grimier take on the lumbering anthems made infamous by Neurosis, Fight Amp’s detuned dissonance is instantly imposing yet still appreciable for its eerie melodies. Slightly less disharmonious than Cursed, yet equally confrontational, songs such as "Dead Is Dead,” "What A Drag” and "Bound And Hagged” rumble from start to finish with a looseness that enforces the cryptic nature of its creators. Still, while the band refuse to back off from their full-on volume, there is a dynamic essence that ensures they are far from a barrage of detuned guitars and crashing cymbals. While it may seem as though Hungry For Nothing is another assault of static, with deeper listens, subtleties and intricacies spring forth. Boisterous, disgruntled and confrontational, Hungry For Nothing is the epitome of unpleasant emotion channelled into controlled hostility — the most appealing, albeit dangerous, modus operandi of all.
