ARSON PROJECT: Disgust: LP

Very competent grind/HC from Sweden that sounds good at both 33 and 45 but is appropriate at 45RPM (in case you’re keeping score). The songs have a d-beat edge and remind me a lot of their Swedish counterparts End Of All, though they sweep aside the melodies of the stadium crust bands and focus more on tempo changes, blast beats, and those simple but effective “chugga chug” riffs. For fans of Cursed, Ed Gein, and Deathwish/A389 catalogs. The songs are simple but effective, the recording is crisp, and the packaging is excellent. –Ian Wise (Power It Up, power-it-up.de)
