DIE SO FLUID Operation Hypocrite (Sanctuary)

London-based trio Die So Fluid describe their sound as dark rock, and claim influences ranging from My Bloody Valentine to The Stooges. On this, their debut EP, the noise they make seems to veer far closer to traditional heavy metal than the above might suggest, and is consequently not my idea of fun. However, a friend whose tastes include Metallica, Testament and Exodus wandered into my office when I was playing this at work and pronounced it excellent, which, for all I know, on its own terms it may well be.
