As far as the music scene in Canada goes (let alone Edmonton), Uncle Outrage has a firm grasp on being one of the few truly original acts going. Nils (UO's vocalist) has had Edmontonians racking their brains trying to figure out the real messagee behind the band's lyrics, attitude, and intentions ever since they hit the scene (or if there even is a message to be found).

Dance Extreme provides no clear answer to that problem, but then again, why should it? The 13-track record comes at you like a freight train, never giving you time to catch your breath. Taking elements from punk, industrial, hip-hop, metal, electronica, and even good old-fashioned shameless radio-worthy pop, these boys have unquestionably created a sound all their own. But strip down any of the songs to bare bones, and it's more than obvious that these guys are brilliant songwriters, as can be heard in "Fashion," "Zombie" and the title track.

However, they have been paying the price that comes with doing something that people aren't comfortable with: a heavily divided outlook under the magnifying glass. Created is a simple love 'em or hate 'em scenerio in their own backyard. Whether this will help or hinder the band's storm for success, who knows, but it sure it fucking fun to listen to.

Wow, a couple of anonymous retards arguing about an Edmonton band. It's like the old days of Indecline here on punknews.org. All we need is Jesse Zaraska in here threatening to "FUCKING KILL" someone and it will be like 2002 all over again.

"playing for 45 more minutes with only guitar and bass with the whole crowd singing along. you're telling me thats a terribly lame show?"

No, that's a lame show with lame people attending it. If you know the words of this band by heart, you are terminally lame.

Their last one had some really solid tracks on it for the most part and sounded like they were really onto something. This one is just more of the same.

These guys are quite horrible the vocals and synth remind me far too much of Mindless self Indulgence and they too were a terrible band.
