CONTRAST ATTITUDE / SEE YOU IN HELL: Split: EP

Contrast Attitude gives us two blazing, noisy, blown-out d-beat-thrash songs, “Mind of Devil” and “No Line.” Distortion permeates everything, creating a white hiss similar to bands like Gloom and Disclose. My favorite song is “No Line.” Starts off with a scratchy guitar, explodes into a rager with a quick pause, then bridge, then back to the chaos. See You In Hell, once again, are the band to really pick this up for. They definitely have a classic Japanese hardcore punk influence, but they do it well and put their own angle on it. “Anonym” is a semi-speedy number, with lyrical matter either inspired by a horror film or about blackmail. Either way, it’s interesting. “Celisti” has more of a Scandinavian influence; raging music, but catchy at the same time. Awesome stuff, once again!
