SKIT SYSTEM: Gra Varld/Svarta Tankar: CD

Hoo, doggy, was the cranial scrubbing this vicious little monkey gave me ever necessary. Few bands can unleash this brand of musical madness the way Skit System can, with their down-tuned crunch and general menace, all fjordcore fury steeped in, but not totally reliant upon, Discharge influence. It never seems to amaze me how Scandinavian bands have taken the basic template laid down by Cal and the boys and managed to remain unique in sound from each other. But I digress. If it’s a grade-A hardcore onslaught you’re lookin’ to punish your ears with, Skit System always deliver the goods.
