GOOLAGOON: Life of Crime: CS EP

This band is… insane. Call me ignorant and/or oblivious, but I don’t get the name of the band or the sponge theme, like, at all. Appears they’re some sort of Sponge Bob-themed band, or something. Either way, it’s one of the best tapes I’ve received to review and that’s coming from a guy who rarely ventures into the powerviolence/grind side of HC. This thing is fuckin’ nuts. Intense and brutal without being too metal. The recording is perfect: gritty and clear. Eight tracks in barely over four minutes. If you’re a blastbeats person, you seriously don’t want to miss this band. –Steve Adamyk (goolagoonhc.bandcamp.com)
