Doom Abuse - SQEMUSIC
FILTER Grade: 78%
By Adam Pollock on April 7, 2014
Exploding in a squall of feedback and white noise, “Help In The Head”—the opening track from Doom Abuse, the first album of new material in six years from Omaha’s The Faint—sets us up for a rollicking, fast-paced trip to and from the very beginnings of electronic music. Echoing equal parts Ministry, Gary Numan and, at times, Dead Kennedys (albeit with better vocals), Doom Abuse is a cathartic slap in the face from a band that sounds completely revitalized after its multi-year slumber.
