HUMUS: Eterna Condanna: LP

Fast, crusty hardcore bordering on grindcore, out of Italy. I dig the passion and aggression and love the message (“Humus still fan the flame of rebellion and promote direct action against the oppressors.”), though there aren’t really any individual, memorable songs here. If anything, this record is the aural equivalent to how I feel immediately following those precious few peaceful moments when I wake up in the morning, before remembering that an orange, dimwitted, narcissistic liar was intentionally selected by forty-six percent of actual adult humans in this country to occupy the most important office on planet earth. (Sigh). Sometimes you just need a soundtrack to your rage, and this LP serves that purpose. –Chad Williams (To Live A Lie, tolivealie.com)
