le Nombre, Scénario Catastrophe

Neck not getting the workout it used to? Then check out Montreal’s le Nombre, a hardworking and hard-rocking quintet who’ll get you back into fighting trim. Produced by bearded rock superstar, Ian Blurton (C’mon, Blurtonia), le Nombre have a vicious twin-guitar attack that will leave any listener sweaty and awestruck by album’s end. There seems an unlimited list of superlatives I could tack on to this review’s shaking frame: bruising, blistering, bone-rattling, mind-blowing, combustible, crushing, primal, fist-pumping, feral. But I find that I am diverting your attention from what is really important. Leave your house now. Go to your local record store. Buy this album. Play at a numbingly high volume. Bang your head until your neck snaps. Blame the injury on the new pillows your mother bought you for Christmas. Feel very guilty–and very alive! (Karyn Bonham)
