Critical Mass

by Spencer Kornhaber

Midway through one of Monotonix's turbulent performances, you might find yourself spritzed by chest-hair sweat and gaping at a drum set perched on top of a ladder. The Israeli threesome's second full-length, though, provides fewer surprises, dutifully thundering through rage-rock history as singer Ami Shalev alternates between growl and yowlto communicate a life-is-short-might-as-well-bash message. "Late Night" briefly breaks the grunt-filled spell with an ever-churning cloud of feedback, suggesting that Monotonix may be as skilled at hypnosis as they are at psychosis.
