"Self Medicated Psycho Therapy" is eight tracks that never lose the groove (though there is some dancing around it) and always give you a reason to go fuckin' nuts in the pit. The guitars of Patrick Sova (ex-ASSININE SOLUTION) and Brent K. have that SOILENT GREEN edge that brings to mind slit wrists and bone saws.
DESOLATEVOID's secret weapon is vocalist Andy Howard, his throat rage moving from sandpaper barking to maniacal squeals. Just listen to the way Howard grabs the sludge groove of "Friend Placebo" by the balls and cues the shift to speed-kill with a blood curdling banshee wail. The guy is just sick (that's a compliment, kiddies). The tune includes a ripping guitar solo too.
