Spazz are a band from Oakland, California that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of crust, grind and power violence and this is a review of their 2001 album "Sweatin ' II:Deported Live Gorilla" which will be released in December by Tankcrimes Records.
A very fast and aggressive grindcore sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats as well as some hardcore style screaming vocals and growls and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the music also incorporates a lot of crust and power violence elements.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and most of the tracks are very short in length and spoken word along with movie samples can also be heard at times and the bass guitars have a very dominating presence throughout the recording and as the compilation progresses a brief use of angry female vocals and folk instruments can be heard and some of the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Spazz remained true to their mixture of power violence, crust and grind on this recording and a great portion of the tracks also come from some of the splits they where a part of, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent, angry, hateful and humorous themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding compilation from Spazz and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Leanord the Dirt Thrower" "Tender Vittles" "Torino" and "Wall Of Death". 8 out of 10.
