My Vitriol - The Gentle Art Of Choking (Infectious)
release date: 15 July 2002
My Vitriol burst out of your stereo like a latter-day My Bloody Valentine, or The Smashing Pumpkins circa 'Mellon Collie', sounding anything but manufactured or contrived, even if they look it.
'Moodswings' is a track that harnesses the power of the guitar band formula, turns up the volume and makes you happy that there are some people out there whose music will do more than wash over your head.
As 'The Gentle Art Of Choking' shows, they're no Nirvana, but who's to say they wanted to be. They're actually much more melodic than all that grunge stuff that's becoming fashionable again. My Vitriol sound like they're worthy of your overwrought attention.
