FORCED FEM: The Safe Word: 7”

I thought this was going to be a lame grind record when I looked at it but instead I got a lesson in not judging a book by its cover because this thing is a fucking killer guitar-driven death rock/demented goth punk record. The music is mid-tempo SoCal punk (think the first Annihilation Time 7”) with a more danceable backbeat and atonal vocals that remind me more of The Mighty Sphincter than Black Flag. I looked this thing up and it’s pretty limited, so you may want to jump it sooner rather than later.
