NINE SHOCKS TERROR: Zen and the Art of Beating Your Ass: LP

Feb 05, 2009

This is a re-issue from 1999, and quite possibly, some of the finest stuff that Nine Shocks Terror ever released. The stage: picture in your ears Raw Power without the metal overlord stuff coupled to Japan's Gauze for the speed, trajectory and smashing instruments to oblivion, and a skinny guy screaming like a tractor's running over his foot. In other words, thrash, but done extremely, extremely well. Come to think of it, 9 Shocks Terror takes a bunch of cues from the Japanese (it's almost impossible to decipher the words in stuff like this, no matter what language they're singing in) and is sieved through hard-knocking Cleveland sensibilities. Noisy but not mushy, angry but not asinine. An ass spanking, to be sure.
