Batpiss - Nuclear Winter lp (Every Night Is A Sat Night Records)


"Batpiss are a heavy alt-rock power trio from the suburbs of Melbourne heavy on the gloom-n-doom, but instead of opting for the traditonally swampy Scientists/Birthday Party approach they sound much more like the early Nineties post-hardcore of a band like Brutal Juice, perhaps 'Wretch'-era Kyuss, the least sludgy of Melvins output or the least weird AmRep bands. Some of it is actually a pretty tight riff on stoner-metal (or action rock, you decide) that isn't indebted to plodding Sabbath nodding but the more aerodynamic styles of the Desert Rock bands (although they snooze out some repeat-o-riffs too). Some moments seem like the more Sub Pop friendly Pissed Jeans material. The vocals are an odd fit on many tunes, just a really monochromatic yell. This guy would sound good in the midst of a more traditional hardcore band, but sometimes the alt-metal attack here needs something with more personality. An Interscope Records logo really wouldn't seem out of place on this LP. "Couldn't Get Out" works out just right because it's basically a hardcore velocity tune. "Drag Your Body" is pretty powerful churn-n-burn and the swampiest cut, "Come Here and Fuck Off" works fine attitudically and musically. Some of the best moments are when they approach the metal-punk sort of style Wiccans do extremely well, but Batpiss just do it with less character (and again, it's all in the vox). A song like "Human" makes me think of how much better this tune could be with some different parts - the Flag-influenced Ginn moves are stretched and sludged nicely but have nothing to play against. It's an agressive album that's just lacking in the personality dept. All balls, which may be enough for some of you. Really nice artwork though..." - TERMBO (RK)

"Debut album of Melbourne Batpiss. It’s raw, it’s angry and it’s coming straight out of Collingwood! Only formed last year, Batpiss is a 3 headed loud beast that has spent its days suckling on punk, sludge, stoner, hardcore and doom radio waves, becoming stronger and stronger.

Since day one it has been a non-stop gig orgy across Australia and New Zealand, supporting bands such as OFF!, The Bronx, Guitar Wolf, The Meanies, Regurgitator, Zoobombs, Blood Duster, Bits of Shit and Grong! Grong!

Recorded upstairs at The Tote Hotel by Tom Lyngcoln (The Nation blue, Harmony) and mastered by Mickey Young (Eddy Current suppression Ring, Total Control), Batpiss’ debut album will definitely be one of the album you will hear a lot about in 2013…" - ENIASN Records
