Screaming Females – “Expire” (6 of 6)
Screaming Females have, deservingly, made hay with that fucking riffage. The only word we can use to describe singer / guitarist / frontwoman extraordinaire Marissa Paternoster are that she absolutely slays, in every sense of the word – absolutely brutal guitar riffs, a surprisingly elastic voice that yelps here and wheedles there and then serenades like a metal balladeer, bitingly sarcastic lyrics – which is why we’re surprised as hell that Ugly’s recent release was kind of overlooked. This is a record that contains songs like “Expire,” the brutal pop-punk kiss-off you’ve been searching for your entire life. Paternoster’s voice goes from a deepening croon to a sharp, mocking bark in zero to sixty, and her electrifying riffs will be stuck in your head eternally if her non-female rhythm section doesn’t make you deaf first. Try to resist; you can’t. Their new album, Ugly is out now.
