KING GENERATOR: Self-titled: 12” EP

Mar 03, 2009

I try to stay away from using words like “brutal” to describe music these days. However, I have to make an exception for this record. King Generator (members are Jamie Thomson (Shank, The Process), Dave Witte (Discordance Axis, Melt Banana, Municipal Waste), and Mike Hill (Tombs, Anodyne)) certainly crank out brutal hardcore that is blistering at times and slow and anguished at others. “Out Of Time” sounds like the sky is collapsing and everything is bursting in slow motion. “My One Regret” is the slower of the songs; the sort of song you listen to and stew in your hate and alienation. This is seven songs of ugliness and despair. Embrace the darkness.
