About this album

Review from unknown person at: almostcool (dot) org

2 By Bukowski
Drink From My Bastard Grail
(Poeta Negra)

2 By Bukowski is a group that I’d heard a lot about before I actually heard them. I read reviews where they were called highly surprisingly and impossible to pigeonhole, and I read others where they were called frustrating (as well as reviews that called them both). After hearing their second album Drink From My Bastard Grail, I’d have to say that I probably side with the latter most argument. Formerly a completely instrumental band (they make their first use of vocals on this release), they’re definitely hard to toss into any sort of category, but while their music is sometimes frustrating, it is also often times quite amazing.

The opening track of “Chopperfuck” is easily one of the most difficult tracks on the release, opening with almost tribal drumming and dirty, distorted layers of guitars that squeal and moan while orchestra bells ring out underneath the squall. This beginning goes on for about 5 minutes (repeating nearly the same riff) until it drops off and vocals by Karine Charff of AMP float gently over the subdued background. It doesn’t stay quiet for too long, though, as the track ends by trudging through a weird, pseudo-metal march.
