YACOPSAE / ZZZ HACKER: Am Enden Des Alphabets: Split 7” EP

Yacopsae: Markedly restrained from some of the high velocity ultracore they’ve released previously, this is nonetheless prime German thrash—feral, fuzzed, and fucked up. ZZZ Hacker: German hardcore that varies in speed from mid-tempo to gallop. They do what they do well, but it’s almost a letdown following Yacopsae’s aural assault. Should’ve listened to ‘em first. –Jimmy Alvarado (Power It Up)
