Album Review

Reviewed 2008-05-13
Legendary heavy crust punk played with a strong sense of rhythm. These are remastered version of their EPs “Who’s The Enemy” (1982), “Winter” and “No Sanctuary” (both 1983). Mixing Killing Joke’s low end and the politics of the Anarcho-punk bands of their time (Subhumans, Crass, Flux of Pink Indians, etc.) – they created a sound that few (if any) had ever heard before. Infuential on everyone from Sepultura to countless hardcore bands. While this isn’t as heavy as their later stuff (“Arise”) it’s just as awesome.

((((1)))) High pitched noise into bass, then a real driving riff and drums. Nice raw sound, too.
(((((2))))) Killer post-punk rythmn with plenty of drums and bass. Oddly psych in places, too. As if Loop went hardcore.
((((3)))) Punk-ish bass & drums, very to the point lyrics with heavily English accented vocals.
((((4)))) Birds, then some lo-fi fuzz punk riff based around chanted lyrics and cyclical rythmns.
((((5)))) Dirty & dirgey with killer bass sound. Perfect title, too.
((((6)))) Clean guitar, weird new-wavey vocals (FCC “fuck in 1st verse) turns into a hardcore death punk smashup. Like a very fukked up version of Venom.
((((7)))) Clean guitar, jazzy-psych in fact (!?) and some sparse vocals.
(((((8)))))) Big sound. Totally doomed @narcho dirge punk. KICK ASS!
((((9)))) Lots of bass, confrontational vocals. Really wild sound, layered.
((((10)))) Raw, lo-fi psych-death rock/crusty punk with sharply tuned guitars a slight galloping feeling.
((((11)))) Noisy, 0 production, super distorted fast hardcore with a Discharge/Motorhead vibe.
((((12)))) Bouncy, drums & bass, lots of odd angles and wailing guitars.
(((((13))))) Fast drums and bass, killer post-punk by way of @narcho hardcore vibe.
