OUTBURN MAGAZINE:
Rating 9/10

Making its label debut, Wisconsin's RIG TIME! throws down WAR, a battered, grimy gauntlet of hate. The trio's sound is an industrial strength mixture of sludge and powerviolence that is, in a single word, heavy. Drummer and vocalist Bryan W. Fleming offers relentless rhythms with industrial precision as well as a smart beat changing sensibility that's too often overlooked in such endeavors. The lyric are full of rancor - nothing too groundbreaking or controversial, but a good fit with the general mood of WAR. Rebecca Fleming's guitar is mean, saturated and dogmatically singular. Bassist and back up vocalist Mark Trueman could be a little louder in the mix - live videos show just how powerful his low end contributions can be - but that's a minor gripe. As effective as the rapid fire, syncopated attacks of songs like "Three Fools," "Restricted," and "Cleanse" are, RIG TIME! is at it's most dangerous when the band is lumbering a touch too slow and flirting with melodic melancholy - hear "War," "Deserve," and "Discomposure" for prime examples. WAR isn't going to change your mind about the genre, but if you have even a slight inclination toward the darker, heavier end of the metal spectrum and/or are a fan of earlier, angrier Godflesh, RIG TIME! has some beautiful sonic hate for you.
