NEURON: Gleichschritt: CD

Clunk! My jaw hits the floor. This a first release? Man, this band is one mean-ass fucker. Dark, German, bottom-heavy black metal that veers into grindcore. Lyrics sung in German with provided English translations shows that this band is a notch above the norm. The lyrics are more in the style of crust with their socio-political lyrics. The lyrical writing style is similar to Discharge with the way they phrase their lyrics. I saw a really bad black metal band this weekend and it seemed like all their songs were over five minutes. It was draining getting through their set. This band barely clocks any of their songs over three minutes. That’s just about right. It’s not a chore getting through this full length.
