MetalBite Review by Chris on 2/22/2002
First of all this CD shouldnít even be here (in our database) but since Relapse decided to show the world this Ďmasterpieceí I felt like dropping in my 2 cents just to warn you not to make a mistake of buying it unless you are a fan of punk. Yes, this CD has got nothing to do with metal and as far as Iím concerned it should not even exist.
You see, as our members from Genocide SS II
were born of hate, I was born to hate hardcore punk. Donít get me wrong I do not hate it because of some stupid ideology or the people behind it, although its influence is growing after reading one of the worst lyrics ever, itís the music. If a complicated song in this genre consists of 5 riffs and drums whooping the same tempo for 90% of the album and guys screaming ĎKill, Kill, Killí then Iíll pass.
I was going to describe some of the music from this release here but it looks like I already did. I might not be too accurate but I donít want to listen to it again just to give you exact titles but there are couple of songs that actually stand out from the rest and thatís why the score is so high. I think one was somewhere around track 7 and one near the end of this CD where I noticed a change. Not bad, canít wait for the follow up.
Unless youíre into hardcore punk stay away like evil from holy water.
