This is a review of another ep from Boddicker which shows the band continuing their mixture of grindcore, death metal, crust, d beat and power violence with the ep being self released in 2014 and called "Crime Upheaval".
Powerful sounding bass and rhythm guitars start off the ep along with a small amount of melody before going into a faster direction along with screams, growls and a mixture of blast and d beats and you can hear a lot of old school grindcore elements and brutality being added into their musical sound.
There is a great amount of crustcore style vocals and the songs are all very short with the longest one being 2 minutes and the band sticks to mostly a mid 80's to early 90's style of crust/grind which they also mix in with the rawer side of Swedish death metal as well as bringing in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts..
Boddicker remain true to t heir aggressive crust/grindcore direction on this ep and sound even more brutal this time around, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Boddicker and if you are a fan of grindcore, death metal, crust, d beat and power violence, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Halo Of Bullets" "Vigilante" "Social Control" and "Energy Blackmail". 8 out of 10.
