A Wild new Release from Deep Fake Hits Hard

A wild and vibrant new album from Deep Fake gives off a fuzz tone soiree as they blend garage rock with gritty punk rock and throw all kinds of things in between to build a soundscape that hits hard where it wants to but oozes with character the entire time.

The (secrets of the)Anunake Bukkake album has a way of swirling around you and hitting like a sucker punch to the gut half the time with this crazy electric energy that feels like it's a live performance and everyone involved is feeding off of each other the entire time.

This is something you don't come across often so when you get it, it feels almost rejuvenating which this album certainly does.

Perhaps they recorded some of these songs live on the floor and part and that's why they come through with so much color and edginess.

Even if I'm wrong about the whole live on the floor thing, listening to this record certainly makes you want to see these guys live in your face simply because if they can capture this kind of energy on record this way then seeing them live must be a real face melter.

There are loads of surprises around the corners of this record, and something about it gets your blood pumping.

The drumming is absolutely outstanding as is the bass and you get elements of underground '90s old rock, '80s punk rock, hints of industrial, outlandish indie rock, and tons more, but it's something that has its own atmosphere to it and this is really what gets you pulled in.

The vocals are animated and performed with a heavy swagger while guitars give this crazy sonic presence, and those textures blending are really what give the record so much drive.

There is a feedback-infused noise aspect to this record that lets it feel loose and fun so you can tell that this is something that doesn't take itself all too seriously but is still addictive and genuine.

This record feels like one of those albums that are made up of superstar members of different groups who really just wanted to do what they wanted to do.

I think this is part of what makes it so addictive. This is an endlessly fun release, and it doesn't have boundaries or walls built around it, so it doesn't follow any kind of conformed formula or try to meet some status quo.

It's not trying to fit into a particular genre and the aesthetic of a band that does their own thing in their own way is satiating.

I adore bands that put out music for themselves and only certain types of people because there's a freedom there for them to do as they please and when there are no boundaries, you're getting the best art that can be produced.

This was a massive record that holds nothing back and because of that it comes with that loss and full-bodied character and personality.

When I was growing up, I learned about bands from magazines a lot of the time and then I would go either to the store and find their record, or I would try and find that one single on LimeWire or Napster to try and download it.

Either way, I would end up getting the album in the end, and that would always be this sort of experience.

This is something that unfortunately and incredibly sadly does it happen that much anymore, but this record gives me that feeling.

The sound of this album beckoned that time and the excitement of hearing a band from the underground that was something new, outlandish, and wild.

Check this record out as soon as you can and listen to it the whole way through because if you only listen to one or two tracks, you're not getting anywhere near the full spectrum of what this album has to offer.

Don't be afraid to turn it up.
