“’Abuse Generator’ (an apt tape title if ever there was one) by Hostage Pageant couldn't be more removed from its protagonist's other band, the blackgaze wonder that is Crooked Necks. Where the Necks are quiet and subdued Hos-Pag is noisy and abrasive. Where the Necks ride rhythm, melody and dissonance HP sack subtlety in favor of blustery reams of noise approved by only the harshest of the harsh, the sort of folks that think Blue Sabbath Black Cheer is too commercial and allow New Blockaders to penetrate them aurally before breakfast.
