Ready, Set, Ruin!, the third release by Portland grindcore cluckers Valkyrie Rodeo, plays like a maelstrom. Thick thunderclaps of low end dominate, anchoring vocalist/drummer Tuviya Edelhart's no-care howls and screechy verses. Loaded with lots of caterwauling, buzzy bass, and tinny drums, the record's obvious allegiances to punk forefathers NoMeansNo (as on "Big Gulp") are tempered by similarly homage-worthy shout-outs to contemporary scumfuck noise brethren like Rabbits. Regardless of where the tones turn, Valkyrie Rodeo's levels of aural destruction are only a string-strum away from shaking the shit out of your head, assuming your head isn't shaking already. RYAN J.
