MASAKARI: Eden Compromised: 7”

For a debut release, this one can stand with the best of the modern day crust bands. It has the heaviness of Hellshock, the power of HolyMountain, and the epic sound of Tragedy. The recording is big with a chest-pounding sound that is hard to ignore. The vocals are deep but not guttural while growling the words into your face. The guitar sound is crunching with sharp riffs that are metallic with the right amount of distortion. Bass and drums bring on the deep tones and rhythms with thunder. I’m truly impressed with this output. If they come ever to town, I want to experience this live.
