England's Extreme Noise Terror have returned with a new album that goes back to the grind and crust punk sound of previous recordings and this is a review of t heir self released 2015 album which was released by Willowtip Records.
A very heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodic guitar leads a few seconds later before going into a very fast grindcore direction t hat uses growling vocals, blast beats and the energy of crust punk and high pitched screams along with shouting style hardcore vocals can also be heard at times.
Most of the tracks are very short in length with only one going pass the 3 minute mark and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses a brief use of melody can be heard while most of the music remains very fast, raw and brutal and also has a very vintage mid 80's style to it and some of the riffing brings in a touch of thrash.
Extreme Noise Terror goes back to their roots on this recording creating a very raw and brutal crust/grind record that sounds like it could of came out during their earlier years, the production sounds very old school yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover social, political, hateful and punk rock themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Extreme Noise Terror and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Punk Rock Control" "Think Outside The Box" "Cash And Trash" and "Cage paralysis". 8 out of 10.
