BACKSLIDER: 2008 – 2013: CD

Collection of their EPs, Reality #5 comp track, and the Skull Fracturing Fastcore demo. There are fifty-one tracks total, so you can either listen the whole way through, or for maximum effect, bits and pieces at a time. This wonder duo cranked crushing powerviolence kind of music—plodding tempos, a ton of low end, and drums that sound like they’re going to bust with every hit. I hear some Man Is The Bastard in their sound, but this is played with more urgency and has a better groove when called for. Then they mix in the likes of Infest and Crossed Out for extra sonic brutality. –Matt Average (To Live A Lie)
