SLANG: The Immortal Sin: CD

Oct 06, 2008

Holy punch in the balls! The first time I heard this band from Sapporo, Japan was on their Skilled Rhythm Kills CD; they ripped me a new one that took some time to heal. This release sounds even more punishing and shows growth as a band. Thick and heavy Discharge riffage with added metallic flair is the backbone of the powerful sound. The vocals are so gruff and forcefully screamed that you can imagine spit flying into your eyes. A dirty yet punchy bass guitar fills the sound with a thud of bottom end and adds to the force of the music. The drumming sounds like the skins are taking a severe beating and barely made it through the recording session. All together, anger amplified. As more bands from Japan have come over to the states to tour, this is one band I hope to see on our shores.
