I'm having a hard time describing what I'm listening to while trying to write this review for Lowest Point, a 3-piece dissonant band from Toronto. Their music is a crust-laden, mad-science experiment that successfully intertwines mathcore, noise and metal all while crushing it into a gutter of hardcore. I can't help but be somewhat reminded of bands I used to listen to like Oxes or Pink and Brown, but thankfully Lowest Point sheds all the hipster bullshit that came attached to those bands. These five songs are REAL. The song structures impossibly stay together all while the music seems to be decaying around it. I don't know if this is making any sense because I think I'm having an anxiety attack right now. And for that, I thank this band. 

Lowest Point also references Cursed as a musical influence, which almost guarantees them a review here. And it just so happens that Alec (bass/vocals) made a short film called "Don't Call Me I Won't Call You" a few years ago about Toronto's most prolific extreme music artists. In it he interviews Chris Colohan about Cursed and there is some great Burning Love live footage. I remember watching this a long time ago and thinking how great it was. I just watched it again and it's still great, and you should watch it as well:
