This is one mean split! Dialer kicks out a side's worth of what could be described as synth-crust. The band has the dark grit and heavy crush of bands like Misery and Nausea, but they jolt their attack up with not one, but two synth players that add a tech-edge to the vicious attack. Dialer bassist E.K. spoke to Punknews about their contribution: "The visuals in our video stream represent bits and pieces of dreams and nightmares brought on by recent stresses."
Meanwhile, for their half, Chronic Anxiety tear through a sides worth of deconstructed hardcore. The band takes the genre's hallmarks - slashing riffs, screamed vocals, a full blast rhythm section - and pulls them aprt resulting in a spacious, meaning sound that at times, morphs into a sort of aggressive dance-punk. Singer Ambr(no e) said, “This album is about anxiety, it’s about anger, the chronic enduring absurdity of modern existence, the hollowness of structure, it’s about metaphor. It’s about giving a fuck and not giving a fuck.”
