LIARS / Drum's Not Dead [2006]

Percussive dance-rock act Liars seemed to get more challenging with each album.  Their third album 2006's conceptual Drum's Not Dead is no exception.
It's what can be best described as a cyber-pagan ritual carried by primal percussion, droning guitars and menacing falsetto vocals that may or not be a eunuch's war cry.  The dueling drums are the stars here but don't let the dreamy textures and use of textured space go unnoticed.  An interesting creative achievement that offers something new with each listen.
