What seems to make the best of noisy, aggressive duos-- Lightning Bolt, The Pope, Mikaela's Fiend, etc.-- is a grand magnitude that the quantity of musicians couldn't manage to limit. Adorned with pedals and stomp boxes galore, the interplay amongst these bands remained natural while sounds that wouldn't even resemble their instruments were conjured. Vancouver, CA's Boogie Monster qualify to be another addition to that grouping as evidenced by their debut full-length Zechimechi.

Driven by guitar and drums, Ben Fussel and Tony Dallas smite listeners with a colorful cornucopia of sonic abuse-- as if the cover didn't serve as enough evidence. Much of the damage on Zechimechi is guided by a monumental fidelity of grating treble and violent bass. As the presence of a single would imply, the most content moment is "Castle In The Clouds", a punk-informed jamboree with a majestic refrain recalling "2 Morro Morro Land". Boogie Monster blitzkrieg along the infectious groove of "Kabutops" in a turbulent stampede, while their conscious reservations are characterized in the thick of the 8-minute closer "Shapeshifters".

In the span of a perfect 33 minutes, Boogie Monster strike gold in a trove of exotic amplifier worship and breakneck rhythmic patterns. The duo transitions from one barrage to another with virtuosity and technique during which their keen sense of songwriting enhances each compositional phase. Much like devouring a bowl of cereal far exceeding its serving size, Zechimechi is prone to overwhelm. My sweet tooth senses this as a triumph, though, that illustrates Boogie Monster's vigorous spirit. -olive-music
