Hypopotomonstrosesquipedaiophobia is the fear of long words, which means this album title is a nightmare to some people, but it isn’t on your ears, which is good as it’s released this week by Hypochristmutreefuzz, an album which is a bundle of fuzzy, noisy rock tracks that need to be heard to be believed.
An album that builds in its intensity from the start, this band use guitar riff and big beats to pound into your ears their sound and you certainly will not mind. Tracks such as Chromakalim are certainly proof of this as the band bring in the best of what they do with a heaviness that is truly unrivalled and this continues throughout the record.
A band of few words, they allow the melodies to do the talking and here that is no bad thing. When used on tracks such as Music Of Spheres they are used sparingly but with real delivery on tracks such as this. Vocals have more of an impact on tracks Elephantiasis as they blend with the big beats this band create on the song, adding a dramatic dimension to the track.
Hypochristmutreefuzz create a unique record as they bring a cacophony of sound on this album, blending them well with different directions of sound that work well together on this record. There are many highlights on Hypopotomonstrosesquipedaiophobia tracks such as Chromakalim certainly stand out, however songs such as Clammy Hands and opening track Finger are certainly tracks that stand out too. It’s not an album you are ever likely to forget.
