BLACK TRAITOR: Self-titled: Cassette

Mar 01, 2011

You know that cassette that you found at the thrift store for a quarter? The one that made you think, “Aw, what the hell?” Then you put it in your car stereo and it was all fucked up. Well, imagine that instead of Prince or Tom Petty or a likely find such as those, it’s a hardcore band that reminds you of Born Against. Next, imagine the fucked-up screeching distortion to be intentional tape manipulation, because that’s precisely what they did. It was kind of interesting, but only a noiser would listen to it more than once.
