APPALACHIAN TERROR UNIT: It’s Far from Fucking Over: CD

Unabashed “humans are cancerous parasites” crust punk here, falling soundly between Bread And Water and the more melodic leanings of Antiproduct. This contains their first 7” and the Greenwashing LP, as well as a bonus track. Pretty ferocious stuff, with a nice tradeoff between the male and female vocalists. I appreciate that the band’s used their huge booklet to include lyrics and explanations to their songs. The genre’s a little played out for me personally, but I don’t doubt ATU’s sincerity for a moment, and no one’s gonna say that they can’t play their instruments. If you’re into Profane Existence stuff, this one’ll do just fine.
