EXTREME NOISE TERROR: Law of Retaliation: CD

Jul 02, 2009

No surprises here from the pioneering godfathers of grindcore: nineteen tracks of blazing, crusty metal hardcore only taking a breath long enough for the mildly disturbing samples at the beginning of most of the tracks on the record. One thing that sets ENT apart from most of their peers is having two lead vocalists and having two variants of the Cookie Monster is fundamentally more interesting than just one. Also, despite the somewhat challenging musical structures and ridiculous tempos, Extreme Noise Terror has a more appealing sense of melody and riffs than the legion of imitators that rose up in their wake. This is an above average release I would recommend to individuals not normally prone to listening to such an extreme form of punk rock music. –Jake Shut
