ZUDASKRUST / PAROTID: Desire of Destruction: Split: 7”

It’s pretty cool that we can now get our hands on vinyl from Indonesian crust bands. In the olden days, it was dusty old cassettes pressed on dust. This multi-label deal has longstanding crust merchants Zudascrust murdering with their late-’80s UK Doom, Deviated Instinct crust coupled with the insane noise of Parotid. Parotid is a newer Malaysian band and has a current Japanese style—of bands like Zyanose or older Spanish legends Invasion—especially in the echoed vocals. Worth a squint if you haven’t changed your jeans in six months and wear a leather jacket in summer. –Tim Brooks (Phobia, phobiarecords.net)
