A couple of years ago, a set of photos showing bands using hollowed-out amps and cabs as stage props went viral. This husband-and-wife sludge-metal duo answers the question of what it would sound like if all those amps were really plugged in. The duo’s albums are quite heavy in their own right, but live they crank up their wall of amps to 11, resulting in a thunderous din that rattles teeth and tests the limits of any venue’s sound system. They pull this off with only vocals, guitars and a drumkit, with not a single bass to be found. Jucifer’s newest album, District of Dystopia, is more in the fast-paced, thrashier grindcore vein than the rest of their catalog, but the raw power of their core downtuned sound is still well-preserved.
