Adult. (yes, that period is important) have returned with their new LP "Why Bother?". On this release the band has ditched guitarist Samuel Consiglio, and yet somehow as a duo have created their heaviest record to date. This is some bleak, dark, and flat out fucking cold music. Many of the noisier tracks found here hearken back to the industrial punk rock bands of the early 1980's such as Throbbing Gristle. Nicola Kuperus' wild vocal style is as menacing as ever, and the songs are extremely well crafted. This is one of the first great releases of 2007.
