DISSIDENT CLONE: Creating the Consumed: 7”

Crusty grindcore with death metal tendencies from this Minnesota two piece. The lyrics are heavy on the Assück side of the political spectrum (anti-capitalism, et cetera) while the musical savagery is accented by Malevolent Creation-style guitar licks. The recording quality has some jagged edges but gives it the kind of charm you can’t buy with Relapse Records studio money. There was some serious special attention paid to the packaging with the 7” booklet stuffed inside an 8 ½” x 11” poly bag with a giant foldout newsprint poster, tons of stickers, and a button. I bet these dudes slay live. –Juan Espinosa (FTWNU2, ftwnu2.com)
