No/Thing by Taurus is the trippiest record I have heard this year still, and not in some shitty college jam band way. I told the band via email recently that it kind of reminds me of when I used to take acid and listen to Skinny Puppy’s Last Rites to scare the shit out of myself, but this is from a decidedly more witchy rock background than the famed industrial firebrands. Taurus have had No/Thing available independantly via bandcamp since April, but it really needed a proper review on this site still. Summer getting you down with too sunny days filled with frisbee tossing losers? Put this on and watch them scatter.This album is a stunner.
Featuring Stevie Floyd of Dark Castle and Ashley Spungin, formerly of Purple Rhinestone Eagle, the band are currently chilling out due to Stevie Floyd’s pregnancy (congrats!), but this record will tide you over for some time with meaty riffs, disturbing forays into howling caverns and a sense of aimless drifting into a void of lonely gas planets lost beyond some distant nebula.
