The Chicago trio Oozing Wound have planted their flag in the spot where metal, punk, and experimental meet. Four albums in, they are firmly devoted to keeping that space both weird and uncomfortable. High Anxiety doesn't stray from their aesthetic: it's thrashy if not entirely thrash, it's dirty and smeared at the edges, and they remain sick of your shit, with their definition of "your shit" an exponentially expanding, spiteful blob.
