While Nether Regions' name might send the immature mind into giggle fits, the intelligent listener will find Portland's gargantuan riff peddlers to offer a whole lot more than crotches and underpants. The quartet takes pride in the fact that their lyrical inspirations are based in reality. Sadly you won't find any battling warriors, fire-breathing dragons, or magical wizards in these songs—just the frightening horrors of man. Into the Breach, the band's first full-length, is nine tracks of thick, ultra-heavy rock with major High on Fire leanings. However, unlike the aforementioned group, Nether Regions sport a pair of guitar players, affording them much more room to explore harmonies and textures. Kyle Bates, the band's 17-year-old ax-slinger—more proof that we are all old and washed up—provides a lofty, psychedelic tinge to the band's otherwise immovable wall of fuzz. ARIS WALES
