As we become less and less connected to each other, art, better yet, music can become both a point of solace for those who feel beaten and disposed. Loud music, then, can become a particularly potent rallying cry for those ready for revolution. Norwich, UK screamo/emoviolence band Cassus hear that call to arms and answer back with the loudest battle cry a band can provide. Their new album Separation Anxiety is an under-35-minute treatise that forces the listener to look at the cracks in our current structures of living under capitalism. The blastbeat drumming of Sonny Patten and the quickly strummed octave chords of guitarist Kelvin Mace help to propel the urgent screamed vocals of singers Natty Peterkin and Nate Revell, keeping the LP's fast pace and chaotic energy going to the very end before letting everything fall away, leaving only lightly strummed guitars and choral vocals to finish the album. Separation Anxiety is nothing short of a masterpiece of modern screamo and you'd be hard-pressed to say anything to the contrary.
