By combining an extremely dense wall of guitars, memorable hooks, and leader Henry Font's sometime screamed, sometimes whispered vocals, New York's Pist-On obtain a very unique sound on their 1996 debut, Number One. Bassist Val Ium also provides disturbing vocal harmonies to complement the band's midpaced chugging on such standouts as "Turbulent," "Grey Flap," and the dreary "Exit Wound." And perhaps most surprising is the band's excellent metalized cover of the Smiths' "Shoplifters of the World Unite."
