Since their inception in late 2011, Norwegian noise rock duo Barren Womb have been raising both eyebrows and hell with their nasty swill of Punk 'n' Roll and Blackened Country Noise. Nique Everything, Barren Womb’s second and arguably most defining album to date, features 10 brand new bursts of easy listening for the hard of hearing. It sees the band further exploring soundscapes, instrumentation, and themes more commonly found in Country/Americana than in Noise Rock. Yet it still retains every ounce of energy and conviction the duo has been known for in the past. From the crushingly heavy opening track "Make sure you get yr whole head in front of the shotgun" via the frenetic Country Punk of tracks like "Piss jugs" and "Town’s back the way you came" to the swampy stomp of "Devil run the game" and "White raven," trails are being blazed left, right and center.
