Cairo Knife Fight Is II Much
There's rock and roll and then there's RAWK. Rawk is heavy, distorted chaos that cannot be contained and that's exactly what Cairo Knife Fight is all about...mayhem. These Kiwis crank up the amps up to twelve, churn out massive power chords and destroy everything in their path. Their new EP, II is a brutal attack of doom enriched guitars and driving drums that sound like an Abrams tank out of control.
Bringing to mind bands like Black Sabbath, Kyuss, and the like Cairo Knife Fight know the way to true power is by slowly grinding everything into bits by utilizing a pulverizing musical attack. They manage to level everything over the course of II as it's riffs grind on and on in an unrelenting manner until you reach the end where Cairo Knife Fight see fit to just put you out of your misery.
Cairo Knife Fight has unleashed a demon of a record here. II is an awesome and somewhat vulgar display of power. This is a record so heavy it can't even lift itself; it's rooted in classic doom and is so powerful it generates nuclear fusion. If you wanted to hear the sound of the apocalypse before it actually happens pick up a copy of II listen to it and repeat the process until the world ends.
