Lazer/Wulf: There Was a Hole Here. It's Gone Now. 

Rising Tide Recording

The four songs on Lazer/Wulf's There Was a Hole Here. It's Gone Now. EP echo the best math, metal, and prog rock craftsmanship of the last decade, but the music never sits still. As opening number "We Will Meet Again" transitions into "Song From the Second Floor," "Bones of the Youth," and finally "Morgue Nest," focused schizophrenia connects each song together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The big picture is a haunted hell ride that oozes with catharsis as mostly instrumental-whiplash fugues of rhythm and melody switch gears before the brain can fully grasp the patterns at work. As such, these grooves aren't meant for easy listening, but the impulsive aesthetic will challenge your mind when you're feeling possessed. (4 out of 5 stars)
