Their 2004 debut album “Exploring the Dangers of” was literally recorded as a live-dub experiment and the band managed to deliver their own unique interpretation of dub and push it further to the another level of an art form. DP – Dave Holmes (guitar & keyboards), Stu Brooks (bass & keyboards) and Joe Tomino (drums & Melodica) break down the walls between raggae, dub, electronica, rock, punk and heavy metal to bring to the surface their own powerful and breathing music.
Although I’m generally avoid any instrumental rock album because I consider them usually kind of meaningless and boring, Dub Trio have some kind of secret magic power, have that primal, ancient and natural force to keep your interest constantly high, to crush you down with their massive sound and expressive compositions.
And “IV” push even further the raging fury coming from punk and hardcore roots, bring to the surface more noisy and experimental passages, deliver the best high-adrenaline punk rock with the most catchy reggae and dub grooves. Words and description seems powerless compared how strong Dub Trio comes through with their fourth album.
It’s simply and exclusively great!
