M:40: Arvsynd: CD

D-beat hardcore from Sweden—dark, desperate, and heavy as fuck. Thankfully, M:40 incorporate some dynamics into their punishing brutality, making for a more interesting listen than much of their d-beat brethren. This CD comes in a hardcover book, a fittingly heavy home for this weighty album. –Chad Williams (Halvfabrikat, halvfabrikat.net)
