FINAL EXIT: Seasons Are Going and Going…and Lives Goes On: LP

Grind can be a polarizing genre, even within itself. From political or artistic noise (aces) to porno or virtuoso (nope). Japan’s Final Exit set themselves squarely on the art/comedy paradigm, grinding from blinding blasts to weird rock breakdowns and noise interludes. Twelve tracks tracing the twelve months of the year (artsy!) and even Maiden’s “Aces High” riff thrown into the month of June (comedy!). This is a vinyl release of their first 3” CD from Rage For All Records. One sided. Eleven minutes. Five hundred copies. Gatefold, same as CD. Locust or Boredoms worshippers, jump on this. –Matt Seward (SPHC, sphcrecords.bandcamp.com)
