With 's Midnight PassengerEx-Cult made the kind of Ex-Cult - Negative Growth powerful album punk bands have been shooting for since around or so, then followed it up with Cigarette Machinean EP that further cemented their place in the modern punk forefront. Led by Chris Shaw 's biting vocals and the twin-guitar attack of J.
Horrell and Alec McIntyre, the band set the bar really high for anything that came after. Well, there's no letdown on album three, and Negative Growth jumps right over that bar like it was nothing much at all. Working again with Ty Segall at the controls, the Ex-Cult - Negative Growth is just as much a rampaging monster of noise, motion, and raw power as its predecessor was. On the shorter, more violent tracks, Shaw 's vocals slash and shout through the windmilling guitars, the rhythm section pushes things forward as if punching through a brick wall, and the energy level is set to stun.
Songs like "Let Ex-Cult - Negative Growth In," "Dogs Roll In," and the brutal "Hollywood Heat Seeker" have a motor that won't quit, and when they cut the throttle some, the music still fairly drips with feverish sweat. The album-ending "New Face On," which features some very Stooge-y sax from Mikal Croninis a prime example that Entombed - Inferno don't have to plow over everyone in sight every time; that they can play with a little bit of restraint and still be exciting.
