The abandonment and subsequent plight of Americas many major urban centers is well documented, but nowhere else is this manifest to its extremity as in Detroit, Michigan. Although there have been hints of a resurgence, downtown Detroit exists in an advanced state of decay and has for many years, its blue-collar past and collection of pre-Depression skyscrapers often referred to as an American Acropolis. For Paik, the very epicenter of this deterioration is precisely where they call home. From the erosion of concrete and steel comes a certain inspiration, a parable that has fueled Paiks ongoing quest for beauty amongst ugliness and chaos. Since their incept in 1997 and across four full-length albums and a smattering of singles and compilations, Paik have studiously advanced and mutated their sound. Evolving from their embryonic shoegaze-inspired melee into sprawling, heavy stoner/psych/drone hybrids as
evidenced on 2003s epic Satin Black , Paik have an uncanny ability to completely shred the atmosphere while coaxing out
blissfully sonorous melodies from their thunderous caterwaul. Pulling back the reigns just a bit, Paik funnel their supersonic cyclones into a tightly focused box of thunder with Monster of the Absolute, their greatest balancing act of melody and dissonance to date.

Also available: MONSTER OF THE ABSOLUTE (CD).
