Dub Trio - IV

Dub Trio is called Dub Trio because they play dub (mixed in with metal) and there’s three of them in the band. Sometimes things just aren’t that far-fetched. Mike Patton is a fan and I liked their previous album as well. They’re back now with a new album called “IV”, thus named because it’s their fourth album. They sure do like to keep things simple.

I’m not sure what happened to them in between albums but this new one sounds more than ever like a bunch of different parts slapped haphazardly together. The biggest mistake on here is called “Ends Justify The Means”, a song (and I use that term very loosely) consisting of nothing more but a bunch of sounds pasted together. It’s incredibly boring and the same can be said about most of the album.

Granted, it’s already harder to keep things interesting when you’re an instrumental band but that can’t be an excuse for a piece of crap like this.
