The press response for DIAL‘s debut EP has been overwhelmingly positive so far. A couple more reviews just came in…
From INVISIBLE ORANGES:
The members of New Zealand’s Dial probably grew up during the peak of AmRep. … True to the form, Dial don’t integrate much variety into songs. The rhythm section anchors throbbing tempos. Guitars grind along with shrieked vocals. The lockstep, stuttering opener “If You’re Not Battling, You’re Dead” sets the tone with machine-like pounding that sounds like it was wound in barbed wire. … This is a capable band, confident beyond its years. Most demos don’t display this level of power.

Dial’s demo-turned-debut-EP is an excellent start. It’s heavy, pissed off, and noisy in some of the best ways possible. … Dial is Unsane heavier, The Jesus Lizard with less guitar lines and more riffs, and the Melvins more pissed off all rolled into one. Few new bands have this much potential, so I want more. A lot more.
