EnablerFail To Feel Safe

★★☆☆ This is another brickwalled slab of noise, short-ish and intense as you’d expect from Enabler. You’ve got a handful of standout tracks that feel like fresh territory, and you’ve got a number of tracks here that feel painfully and regrettably rote by now.

All of that said, I actually listened to this album twice.


EnablerLa Fin Absolue Du Monde

★★★☆ I’m not sure I’m in love with the lo-fi production ethic going on with this album. On the other hand, a case could be made that the metal herein is so fucking intense that mere mortals wouldn’t be able to cope otherwise. This is Enabler’s most ambitious release to date, a pyroclastic flow of hardcore violence that only the most jaded can resist.
