The End says
The latest collection of audio pandemonium from Detroit’s Child Bite was self-produced at Russian Recording in Indianapolis, Indiana, and boasts a wholly bastardized hybrid of the Melvins, Dead Kennedys, Big Black and System Of A Down. Ugly, anxious and perilously habit-forming, Child Bite’s self-proclaimed “music for losers” continues to astound media outlets both stateside and abroad. Said American Aftermath, “The soundtrack to the greatest psychotic slasher film that never was has arrived in the form of Child Bite’s new EP, Strange Waste. These Michigan punks have been making noise since around 2005 but have outdone themselves tremendously with these nine new tracks. Child Bite’s sound is a mangled mash-up of noise rock and punk that comes across as something deranged yet catchy. Churning bass lines and atonal, seizure-like guitar riffs drive the band’s sonic assault and are met with the psychotic screaming/howling of Shawn Knight… If there was ever a contest to find a sound that takes earlyJesus Lizard and My War-era Black Flag, combines them and tortures them for hours on end, Child Bite would win first prize.” Invisible Oranges concurs, “This band could go anywhere, in the best way, and also have an uncanny ability to attract non-metal listeners, if their live shows are any indicator. I’ve seen people come in from the street and pay entry to see Child Bite sight unseen, only to watch the arty garage band they thought they were seeing devolve into a savage grindcore outfit before their eyes – and stay put. I’m not sure I’ve seen a band with as much potential to surprise people and cross over genre boundaries since I first heard Mastodon,” while Detroit Free Press notes, “Child Bite’s music smashes into you, as fast as a freight train and just as heavy. The guitars are a blistering blur of nimble and gnarly tones, with the rhythm section’s raucous grooves propelling a raspy, yowling vocalist’s emphatically motor-mouthed lyrics.”
