An Anthology of Dead Ends (Hydra Head)
by Tim Den

Goddamnit, we lost another one. The Pacific Northwest powerhouse Botch leaves this mortal realm with one final testament to their brilliance: An Anthology of Dead Ends. It almost makes me mad how good this EP is, just knowing that there will be no follow-up. The band has never sounded better: Awkward catchiness, mind-boggling technicality, third degree-burn ferocity, and just overall fucking top notch songcrafting. Bands like The Dillinger Escape Plan only wish they had this kind of fluid control over math/noise metal. Get this. And while you're at it, get We are the Romans too. And realize how much time you've been wasting on turds.
