Gazer is as subtle as unpaid loan sharks. Vocals are snarl-grunt-shouted like a serial killer about to rip off your limb; the drums are manhandled so meanly they could bring up abuse charges; the guitar lead breaks could be called overload confusion; and the din is so red, raw steak feels overcooked. A touch mad, perhaps, in either sense? This Cincinnati band are a frightening, Chainsaw Massacre horror of post-punk tribal cacophony, an orgy of anger, a blistering sore popping, a senses-blowing trip to ear-shredding hell to make Big Black or Killdozer sound new age. Fake Bulbss four new cuts and 2013s four Phone Commercial EP tracks constitute 23 minutes of assault and batterylike a grizzly attack!
THE BIG TAKEOVER #75
Gazer is a noise-punk spitter-sputter three-piece from Cincinnati. Fans of easygoing pop or soft-rock beware.

…theres a dissonance, like a harder Sonic Youth…the musicianship is very strong…I kinda think this is fucking awesome.
TWO GREGS ONE, PODCAST / PUNKNEWS.ORG
Gazer use a combination of noise and punk to rock the sound-waves… a band to keep an eye on. If loud, bawdy, rock tunes with some wicked riffs are what you’re looking for, this is right up your alley!
