There are many gadgets and gizmos and loop pedals that musicians can use to sound huge, but in the end, the true beef has to come from the players. And Sam Ford and Max Dameron of Wizard Rifle offer beef in blazes. Their Speak Loud Say Nothing, a self-released CD that's being re-released by Seventh Rule Records, is a butcher's delight. Its five meaty piles of deconstructed post-hardcore are held together by huge riffs and pummeling drums; think Fugazi doing Big Business with the Melvins for some High on Fire heaviness. On top of this mess, Wizard Rifle also channel a little Queens of the Stone Age at their strangest. The result is some seriously weird but very delicious headcheese. ARIS WALES
