ANOTHER DAY HAS PASSED AND YOU STILL HAVEN’T HEARD GOES CUBE?
Goes Cube force us to discard our genre tags and recognize the rarity of the word “song” as it pertains to metal. They can write a damn fine one, complete with verses and a chorus and ye olde bridge. Without trying, they also de-compartmentalize all the genre prefixes – the divisions shrink between “post” and “retro,” “neo” and “prog” and “stoner,” “metal” and “rock,” ‘til they become different shades of a single house style. The opening line from “Back to Basics” says it all: “Wreak havoc / Take it all apart / Dismantle / Break it down to its most elemental forms.” Goes Cube write songs the way that Helmet and Quicksand used to, with compact shocks of riff and scrappy melody, loose strings and pneumatic heaviness.
