Unholy Two

Having expanded to a 3-guitar attack, Columbus, OH’s Unholy Two’s first recorded output since 2010’s ‘$kum of The Earth’ (Columbus Discount/Negative Guest List) is a more than worthy followup to that caustic masterpiece. Why is it that no one has previously thought of a combined musical homage to Rick Rude and Richard Ramirez? Besides Jeff Lynne, I mean.

There’s a lot of other bands out there making super ugly, noisy music. And if you think I’m gonna use this space to talk shit about any of them, you couldn’t be more wrong. Hype’s all good and fine, but I’m not getting my lights punched out just to sell a couple of singles. Put your own ass on the line and tell me how it works out for you.

prior praise for ‘$kum Of The Earth’ :

“Unholy Two dive straight into the trash, at times piling the noise on so thick that the rhythms of the songs simply disappear, only to come back out of the torrents of shit spewed out from reverb and delay units running through the vocal mic and the layers of shit distortion and electronics encrusting the guitar. There’s form here, in the 2/4 percussive stomp which gives the proceedings a distinctive NYC 1985 feel ” – Doug Mosurock, Still Single

“If a woman had sex with $kum of the Earth, the record would not use its hands. Wes Flexner, The Other Paper

”The last American Punk Rock band standing” – Done Waiting
