Album Review

Reviewed 2008-10-25
Fast, raw political hardcore & noise rawk trio from Oakland. Pretty crusty in parts. Good use of male & female vocals. Great live band, too. Mixes Nausea, AmRep stuff like Hammerhead & The Bastards (Minneapolis). A little too chaotic at times but certainly getting there.

(((((1))))) Fast, loose bassy, raw crust-core sound. Like a fast version of Nausea.
((((2)))) Almost power-violence vibe mixed with spastic crust & pummelling hardcore. Dude's voice is almost outta breath.
(((((3)))) Feedback & headsmashing chaotic crust lots of good bass & drum sound. Slow doomy breakdown then back again.
((((((4)))))) Hell yeah! State smashin' raw punk/hardcore.
((((5))))) Bassy, twangy then blasting guttural crust with weird tempo shifts. Manic vocals.
((((((6))))) Straight up, take-no prisoners crrrrrussstttt! Excellent rock action in the breakdowns, too.
(((((7))))) Ripping, modern heavy & fast as fuck. Great mix of bass & guitar.
(((((8))))) Rhythmic, rockin' as hell. Reminicent a lot of Nausea AND Hammerhead.
((((((9))))) Slow, doomy with some melodic and raw vocals. Interesting + worth several spins.
(((((10))))) Chunky riffs, good dual vocals, lots of stop/starts.
((((11)))) Raw, sporatic and rippin'.
(((((12)))) Good build up like a crusty version of an AmRep band. Very riffy and catchy.
((((((13)))))) Fast, raw hardcore with some cool changes in tempo.
((((14)))) Fast, to the point, bassy HC.
(((15))) Short and a bit similar to #14 minus the out of control vocals. Still pretty cool.
(((((16))))) Feedback, epic and damn heavy sound. Similar to a "crustified" AmRep band like Hammerhead.
