THRASH OHOOII / KESUMAT: Split: 7”

What a nice surprise this is. The packaging is great. It includes a cool poster and a really thick slab of vinyl. (Maybe the thickest 7” I’ve ever seen) Both groups are Malaysian. Thrash OHOOII are a total HC thrash attack. They rip, despite the weird name. (Do they mean Thrash Ahoy? I really have no idea.) Kesumat are both slower and faster at times, and a lot darker. They are also very cool. This is a 7” well worth checking out if you’re into fast, heavy tunes. (And you should be!)
