ANTHROPIC: Architects of Aggression: CD

I spend so much time whining about how much I hate metal that I forget that I actually like some of the punk subgenres with metal connections. Anthropic from Buffalo plays classic early grindcore, akin to Sore Throat or Phobia. It’s their debut full length, and it’s great. Proficient musicians and a scary vocalist carry the hooks, with discernably socially conscious lyrics peeping out at the surface. Available on CD from various distributors or directly from the band, this inauguration warrants LP treatment as soon as possible. –Art Ettinger (Self-released, [email protected])
