Fuck The Facts
Legacy Of Hopelessness

While the likes of Ion Dissonance, The End, Despised Icon and Neuraxis garner most of Canada’s tech –grind-core praise, Ottowa’s female fronted Fuck the Facts, though quiet since their Backstabber Etiquette effort are making a little noise with this 6 song EP.
‘Noise’ is the appropriate term here as amid the bands violent grind-tech savagery there are some Genghis Tron like spats of techno, sampling and flat out genre bending weirdness that may be a little too much for some, but they certainly give FtF a sense of character amid the recent Canadian assaults.
For example, opener “City of Stone” starts with a dance beat and samples before the almost epic riff climaxes the introductory number. However, that mild sense of trepidation is destroyed by the electronic laced grid of the 40 second “Horizon”. Then the video game beeps that start “Dear Shit Book” are broken up by some horrifically heavy mid paced savagery while the beeps and whirs continue to litter the track. Then there is the virtually melodic, celestial instrumental “Short Term Goals, Long Term Disappointments” that sounds like something Hypocrisy would play. “Eclat-Boue-Sang” starts with black metal synths before Mel Mongeon shatters the beauty with her vicious scream and the track delves into a sort of blackmetalcoretechnogrind mind buggery: It’s actually really good, despite my best efforts to describe it. After instrumental closer “Make Your Grave”, you realize the EP is over quicker than the time it takes to have sex (or is that just me?), and I was craving more (or is that just my wife?).
Anyways, a tastily noisy, if short spasm of challenging and extreme music that’s a little different to the usual array of perfectly polished Yannick St. Amand produced affairs and hopefully bodes well for a interesting full length effort. Unless they churn out another 67 obscure EP's and splits....
