NEEDLE: Self-titled: CS

Dec 06, 2019

This is angry, fast, efficient, and well-done grindcore and/or power violence with enough slower moshier parts mixed in with all of the shrieking, growling, and blast beats to keep me interested. For a while, I’ll keep this tape close to my stereo for a quick blast beat fix, but—at the risk of sounding overly critical—I’d like to hear a band this proficient do something to stand out more. Playing perfectly within a genre that hasn’t been expanded on in fifteen years doesn’t make your tape a must-have. I want more and I think Needle has the chops to bring it. According to To Live A Lie, they’re only eighteen. They got a lot of time to come into their own. –Craven Rock (To Live A Lie)
