WRONGDOER: Self-titled: CD-R

When I saw this in my box of things to review, I first thought it was a CD re-issue of one of the old Acrid 12”s because the covers share some similarities. Putting the CD on, I found some more similarities. Wrongdoer are a grindcore band with fast parts, slower quieter parts, samples, and a drum machine. I hear all kinds of influences listening to this including, modern grindcore, Neurosis, old black metal, and everything in between, while, at the same time, still managing to make it sound fresh and current. The lyrics are political, and, overall, this CD is pretty fucking good. I seriously doubt this is the last time I’ll hear about them.
