Fuck the Facts Legacy of Hopelessness

Fuck the Facts Legacy of Hopelessness
Having garnered a small amount of attention due to their thoroughly unmarketable band name and vigorous touring schedule, Ottawa experimental grind freaks Fuck the Facts are acquiring a considerable following within several different crowds. Legacy of Hopelessness sees the group diversifying their sound further, incorporating an almost epic tone to their slower, more down-tempo moments and allowing melody within the musicianship to show through a bit more overtly than on previous releases. Their sound still remains abrasive and difficult to swallow upon first listen, especially due to the severely underwhelming running time. The group’s knack for samples and ear-piercing, distorted, barely audible vocals is still in full swing. Nonetheless, the unbridled mayhem of the group’s stage show remains unmatched on disc, despite their best efforts — although their upcoming full-length may set a new standard. (Capital Kill)
