Some bands like to challenge the listener and San Franciscoís No Statik are clearly one of those. The bandís first album We All Die In The End showed that they could take the blitzkrieg style gruff hardcore approach, but that they also seemed equally at home doing something almost ethereal and the total opposite to the aforementioned assault-like delivery. However, Everywhere You Arenít Looking takes things a step further and the opening track, ďUnclarified,Ē takes up the whole of the first side, lasting around 14 minutes. The first ten minutes finds a song laced with samples, feedback and atmospheric noises, accompanied by the occasional vocals, and then is joined by a rumbling of drums which gradually turns into a much bigger and beastlier sound. Then from that emerges for a 90 second blast of intense hardcore before heading back to a more sedate ending. This is one hell of a side of music and the crescendo leading to that minute and a half of power is like ascending the highest point on a roller coaster, knowing that you are soon to face a short, sharp feeling that is exhilarating yet slightly overwhelming at the same time.
