Glorious, carefully constructed and meticulously but voraciously performed insanity. No matter how familiar one may be with the full and lengthy extent of the Doctor Nerve canon, the surprises never once stop unfolding. One marvels at the twisted cohesiveness of all this fury just as one marvels at the longevity of the tenure of some of the band members involved.
Favorite track: If You Were Me... with Matt Hollenberg.
The Doctor is In!! Doctor Nerve return with their first new work in 11 years. LOUD is Doctor Nerve performing their most in your face aggressive metal electric avant jazz.
Favorite track: Painting With Bullets.
