VARIOUS ARTISTS: No Speed Limit Vol. 3: 2xCD

May 27, 2009

This reminds me of the No Fate series of comps from HG Fact in Japan. Packaged like a 7" EP with a massive booklet, the similarity continues with its roster of international bands and mixture of grindcore, fastcore, noise, sludge, crust, and more. You get forty-one bands and ninety songs on two CDs. Bands included that I recognized are Abstain, Unholy Grave, Hated Principles, Scumbrigade, Sewn Shut, and Rot. There are so many other bands on this that it blows my mind how much punk is out there around the world. It’s so much to soak in on one listen. Good for a case of anger management. Not for the timid.
