SWEET TOOTH: Japanese Void: 7"

Jul 19, 2011

Holy thrash from hell. Here we have six tracks of totally raging hardcore that all break the speed barrier without resorting to blast beats or gimmicky sub-genre nonsense. The songs are great in a totally timeless way, as these tracks have the analog feel of ‘80s production, with the speed and intensity of the late ‘90s. If this thing didn’t have the year on it and I had to guess when it was recorded, I wouldn’t even know where to start. Lyrically, this record is great in a classic, snotty, sarcastic way. “Therapy Nightmare” includes the line, “Who bonds with these assholes?” Who needs poetry when you can say it out loud? Highly recommended listening.
