DECIDE IT YOURSELF: Self-titled: CS

Based on the cassette cover alone, I expected this to be much more straightforward hardcore/thrash than it is. The vocals themselves are clearer than the cookie-monster variety I was expecting based solely on the artwork. Some pretty intense fills and truly pummeling riffs, I bet this band is a fucking riot to see live. Most of the songs are under two minutes and sound like they probably take most of the energy of all involved. I find it excellent and perfect to listen to on a punishingly rainy day in the PNW. –Theresa W. (Totally Brainless)
