GRAF ORLOCK: Destination Time Today: LP

Jan 12, 2010

Do you like elaborate packaging that looks like it cost a shit ton of money to produce? How about samples from movies in between each and every song? Then boy, do I have the band for you! I’ve set the bar for out of control hardcore with dashes of metal thrown in for good measure at Bucket Full Of Teeth. Graf Orlock didn’t quite reach that level of insanity. There’s something going on behind the scenes that I’m not completely comfortable with as far as the recording production goes. Perhaps the packaging was foreshadowing of what was pressed onto the grooves here. Way too polished and clean-sounding for my liking or for this genre of music.
