Where Mass Movement fails between the salsa shuffles and the carnival-esque breakdowns is the horrible random scratchy, rough vocals they'll throw into the mix every so often. Also the forced off-timing measures that are really uncalled for. They're a talented bunch but they have their heads in the wrong places at times. Production-wise it's a raw and gritty album but hell yeah, that's punk rock. I would like to point out that the guitar work done by the single guitarist is very impressive.
The song 'Translucent Insides' by Mass Movement Of The Moth has a tempo of 165 beats per minute (BPM) on 'Outer Space'. Get the Tempo of more than 6 Million songs.
It would be impossible to describe Outerspace, or Mass Movement of the Moth as a whole, in one word or genre. Hardcore is obliviously the first word that comes to mind, but one word cannot do this record any justice; it would be like calling Saetia "emotional," and leaving it at that. No, this album is not just hardcore: Outerspace is bearded hardcore under a flashing strobe light in the middle of a low budget sci-fi movie.
Relying on just the right equation of complex, punked out and sinister guitars licks, grooving trancelike and tle-world bass lines, buzzing sci-fi synths belonging in outer space, frantic punk drumming that dare to bend the rhythms into mesmerizing grooves, and megalomaniacal shifts into changes that transcend genres, Mass Movement of the Moth have already conquered the ever. Let us know what you think of the Last.
