Shit The Cow - Rissna EP

Shit The Cow, possessors of a unique art-metal groove, call their style “skrotrock” – “scrapyard rock”, and have a delivered a steaming cauldron of punk, stoner, rock, metal, alternative and ‘80s new wave on EP number three.

Rissna finds them closing ranks, viking style, against a Common Enemy: mediocrity, blandness, the generic. There’s nothing generic about Shit The Cow, from their name on down.

Christened after the small village in the woods of northern Sweden where these tracks were recorded, Rissna continues the trend set by previous EPs Volume/Cow and Salt Of The Earth of instantly engaging, smart rock n’ roll that wears its individuality proudly.

You’ll struggle to compare Shit The Cow to another act, though at a stretch the aloof aggression of The Godfathers might be a half adequate starting point.

This Is The Shit, Legion Of Death, the guitar-Devo ‘tood of Down Below and the refracted QOTSA grind of The Pieces Of Lead all add up to another quality Shit The Cow release.
