Annihilation Time have evolved from a rather predictable, straight-up Black Flag/Bl’ast clone into a ripping amalgam of that early sound, Rock N Roll Nightmare-era RKL and a drug-addled Phil Lynott’s finest moments. This is yet another step forward in the progression heard on both the II LP and the Cosmic Unconsciousness 7”, and the band’s new home on smoke-enveloped Tee Pee Records seems an exquisitely perfect fit. This should delight clean cut hardcore kids, dirty old skids, crossover metal nerds, and everyone in between. Bonkers.
