Throat- Short Circuit LP. Throat is a heavy four-piece band that hails from the dark wooded landscape of Finland. It’s easy and a bit cheap to liken any and all modern noise rock to the Amrep catalog, and even though Throat tips their fur-brimmed hat in that direction, they definatley go beyond that. Other important short-circuited touchstones include Trance Syndicate, and the early, raw nastiness churned out by both Blast First and Sub Pop, but with more groove, and more loud/quiet/loud/weird/loud dynamics. The lumberjack thud of early Tad, and the spatial bleakness of mid period Neurosis come to mind. Even the strangling abrasion of Big Black and Jesus Lizard. And Throat have already shared stages with Brainbombs, Unsane, Big Business, Church of Misery and Brant Bjork, so that should give you an idea of where these guys are hanging that aforementioned fur brimmed hat.
