ANEURYSM: Awareness: LP

Ripping fast, noisy hardcore here with a spazzed-out, shrieking singer who’s trying to work through a lot of pain. The whole album is a non-stop onslaught of mental anguish with dark lyrics that will ruin your day if you’re having a good one, but just might be what you need for a bad one. At times it references some of the least accessible Nirvana songs, but it’s far from grunge. It’s ugly hardcore for ugly people, and if you’ve been in an ugly mood like I have, then I highly recommend locking yourself away and playing Awareness. –Craven Rock (Tor Johnson)
