It is evident that a no holds barred journey is about to ensue from the moment vocalists, Robert Bly Moore and B.ILL, of Long Beach Noise Rock band, Sterile Jets, begins to share his vengeance over the first track of ‘No Gods, No Loss’. The balls to the wall lyricism over the album’s title track, “No Gods, No Loss”, is a juxtaposition of the ugly and the splendid that strikes a fine balance that is truly appealing to fans of infamous Noise Rock crackerjacks such as Butthole Surfers, Sonic Youth, A Place to Bury Strangers and Shellac.
A bit scratchy with vocals, the album’s third track, “Go Out And Bleed”, insinuates that an individual has earned their place in hell and is living a desolate existence in which they are better off crossing over to the other side. “Piss On Your God” is an atheist’s musical dream with a very stoned sound that would fit nicely into a tattoo shop daily playlist or a jam to rock out to at a punk rock show prior to enraged lunatics marching around with their fists in the air. The album’s eighth track, “A Sterile Existence”, begins with a simple, slow and grungy industrial edge that amplifies into a messier rock track twisted up with dark lyricism that a cynic would blast in their room while trapped within a state of utter mental gloom. The album closes with “Olive Spoil” which is a track that conjures up the messy distortion of envisioning your favorite band smashing their guitars on stage after destroying a live set.
Sterile Jets could care less that they deliver not the slight sense of hope over ‘No Gods, No Loss’. The Long Beach rockers are a refreshing dose of authenticity over a filterless release that Noise Rock lovers will strongly appreciate. Keep an eye out for the May 4th, 2017 release of ‘No Gods, No Loss’.
