DISSIDENT CLONE: Civilized: CD

Ten new tracks of blindingly fast crust-grind from this Minnesota duo. Dissident Clone’s lyrics are politically charged with a specific focus on a call for unification in the wake of the shitstorm that the “Golden Dunce” has created. Musically, they seem to have gotten tighter and still remind me of early Phobia or even Disrupt gone death metal. Amazing artwork from Vincent Locke (Cannibal Corpse album artist). Fuckin’ A, this rules. –Juan Espinosa (FTWNU2, ftwnu2.com)
