SHAMPOO BOY – “Gift”

If you are sometimes tempted to dismiss bands based on the connotations of their name alone, you might overlook Shampoo Boy. But if you did, you would miss out on dissonant, raw noise presented in the drone style of Sunn O))). Not quite brutal, not quite doomy, this track, “Gift”, is nearly 8 minutes of shredded nerves. Licht is the debut album by this Vienna-based trio of Christian Schachinger (guitar), Christina Nemec (bass) and Peter Rehberg (electronics). Purchase Licht from Blackest Ever Black.
