HATEWAVE: Free Ringtones: CD

On the back, right after the “recorded in 1995” info, are the words “Fuck Metal.” This seems a bit oxymoronic since the cover would be the ultimate stereotype of metal misogyny—a naked girl, spread-eagle and on her back, covered in bloody handprints impaled on a guitar neck. On the back of the booklet is what looks like a four-year-old’s interpretation of the picture on the front. The music is utterly incompetent grindy hardcore stuff with someone rockin’ a Casio SK-5. Gonna hafta to pass on this shit, and I mean that last Saxon word with all the sincerity I can muster.
