BRISTLES, THE: The Last Days of Capitalism: CD

Another thrasher of a release from this Swedish institution. Tunes fly by with the requisite modified Discharge influence, topical lyrics addressing the state of Swedish (and western) society circa-now—work, “gendercide,” corporate control of pretty much everything, well-aimed swipes at both the right and left—delivered with an intensity that doesn’t snitch out just how long these cats have been around, yet is well informed with experience. A corker throughout.
