Album Review

Reviewed 2007-01-15
Local mix of grindcore, hardcore and metal. Doing a pretty nice job of combining all 3 styles. A bit of Dystopia, The Black Hand and Brutal Truth in one band.

((((1)) Tight mix of hardcore, noise rock and death metal. Playing every style with tons of innovation and no generic “E chord chug”.
((((2))))) (FCC in the intro sample “fuck” said twice) Blasting raw yet melodic death/grind with a really awesome breakdown.
((((3)))) (FCC “fuck” sung twice) Soaring, fast Tragedy-style hardcore with the snarling vibe of Dystopia. Lyrics go off on “typical punks”.
(((((4)))) Charging fast, raw hardcore. Really nice drumming and riffs.
(((((5))))) Movie sample, dense riffs and clattering cymbals and blast beats. Good vocals & solos, too.
(((6))) Big ass riff with fast tempol and incomprehensible vox, too squirrelly with the experimentation but at least kinda interesting in the breakdowns.
(((7))) Scattered tempos, a bit too mixed up here to make for a cohesive song.
(((8)))) Battering, wild chaotic hardcore with a strong metal influence. Lots of time changes but not super “techy” either.
