Still/Form - "Loyal, Like Dogs"

Portland, OR's Still/Form are going to be a hard band to define. Their latest single, "Loyal, Like Dogs," is a loud, heavy, and noisy track that doesn't fit quite into any category. It's not quite heavy enough to be metal, but it kind of is. It's a little too noisy to be considered metal, not even alt-metal like bands like Quicksand and Helmet. But it's a little too heavy to be noise rock, although it is really noisy. When I listen, I'm hearing a lot of other difficult to define bands such as The Jesus Lizard, Shellac, and Pelican. Which is pretty great company for Still/Form to be in. If you're looking for hard to define loud and noisy rock, you're going to need to check out "Loyal, Like Dogs."
