GRUK: Waiting for the Rapture: CD

Nov 16, 2008

Manic and spastic punk rock that is definitely fuckin’ pissed off to the core. Frothing at the mouth with spit-spraying female vocals is what catches your attention right off the bat. Her vocals jerk and sway during the screaming and express a picture of insanity unleashed. The production on this release has a very live feel to it; almost what you would imagine if you saw the band playing live in your living room. The band plays a garage-y punk sound at one moment and then they push forward with their thrash attack. It reminded me of a few bands that I saw in the mid ‘80s. If you get a chance to see this band live, you have to experience the mayhem and see the vocalist at work. Over the summer I did catch them and I was truly impressed.
