No Worth Of Man What’s Your Damage?– Self released With an aesthetic that conjures visions of vampire hunters in 1980’s Miami, No Worth Of Man have a sound that’s equally colourful, and after a Robocop-style introduction they get straight down to business with the hard-hitting ‘Into The Dirt’. With big chunky riffs, chest-thumping drums and gruff vocals, there’s a lot here to like and the band proceed to dish out the good stuff. Operating as a three-piece ensures a tight unit and there’s a singularity of focus which channels all their energies into a finely honed laser beam. The result is a band who play with mechanical precision and this means cuts such as ‘An Unpaintable Soul’ go straight for the jugular, and then feed off the listener’s lifeblood. It all adds up to a huge, impenetrable wall of sound, and one which threatens to topple over you at any moment. Setting the scene with a few choice samples, the band create a real sense of time and place and you can clearly visualise the characters who inhabit these songs, so much so that they seemed to have stepped out of a movie set.
