SLIGHT SLAPPERS: A Selfish World Called Freedom: CD

The band’s name is a misnomer, for there is nothing slight about what they do. Their music is the aural equivalent of being repeatedly bitch-slapped with a studded metal fly swatter. This is a seein’ stars, turn all the lights off, no relief in sight migraine that no amount of aspirin is gonna help. It’s all hyper-speed tempos, over-the top screeching and a “let’s go in, kill ’em all and get the fuck out” plan of attack. More succinctly, the title of their opening salvo says it all: “Tokyo Power Violence.”
