Muso's Guide Reviews A Live Die! Die! Die!

Die!Die!Die! hit town to promote new album 'Harmony' & bring it home to me that now’s maybe the time to invest in some earplugs for gigs. This was a damn loud show.

From Dunedin (NZ) to Dunedin (UK), as was, 'Die!Die!Die!' hit town to promote new album 'Harmony' & bring it home to me that now’s maybe the time to invest in some earplugs for gigs. This was a damn loud show. They perpetrate this sonic terrorism at breakneck speed, battering out such selections as "Blinding" (from the 'Promises Promises' album of 2007) with barely a gap for any light to get in between one song and the next.

Husker Du in their prime may possibly have come close to this intensity but there are equally strong grounds to assume not. A new album is already being worked on so clearly the guys are in an inspired frame of mind at the moment therefore alongside "16 Shades Of Blue" and "Seasons Revenge" from 'Harmony' there’s also the first live outing for a track from this future opus, the title of which is lost to the clash of volumes pouring forth from the speakers but the word “insanity” features a lot during it. Another half hour or so of this and that might just have been induced.
