Noothgrush - Live For Nothing
The legend that is Noothgrush will be served well by this live release. "Live For Nothing" combines the best of two Bay Area radio broadcasts in 1996 and 1999. A consistent contender for the throne of Doom, the band is here showcased in all its sludgy, plodding glory.
A generous slab of eighteen greasy tracks, "Live For Nothing" features everything you could possible want from the band to date. While all the songs are suitable grim, heavy and full of their patented death-groove, a few tracks do rise up from the bog and standout from among the others.
There are two versions of "Derrell's Porno Song," both of which kick up the tempo to almost thrash levels, and seem like a cleansing interlude from the sludge. But sludge is what we want, and none are better than "Jundland Wastes," "Procreation of the Wicked" and "Oil Removed." A slow, grinding, monstrous version of "Hatred for the Species" also sticks to the ribs.
For radio broadcasts, the sound is excellent, sacrificing none of the band's volume or raunch. Noothgrush are showcased in all their glory on "Live For Nothing," a slab of ultra-heavy doom from one of the best American bands toiling within the style. This is essential for anyone wanting to experience a band at the top of their chops.
