CROP CIRCLE: Citizens of Fear: Cassette

If you’re going to do hardcore, it’s got to be loud. Crop Circle understands the basic theories that provide the world not with the hardcore it wants, but the hardcore it deserves. The vocals are harsh, strained to the verge of snapping. The music is tight and connected, a bed on which the vocals can rage itself into your ears. As a result, the recording has a sense of urgency, as if the tempo must be fast to get the message out in time. They play with the resolve of a band who are all about to die if they don’t play their music right this very second. Grade: B+.
