A really great debut 12’’ by this Swiss crust band is their second release since their formation in 2003 by members of Pack, Lost and Brutal Massacre. While not really sounding like Born Dead Icons, the eleven tracks here inhabits the same grimy corners of low-end down-tuning played at low-to-mid tempo, backed by a pounding solid drum beat and gravel vocals. Centering on dark mood as much as overdrive of straight ahead attack, it’s a powerful record in it’s a balance of dark, haunting riffs with simplistic brutal pounding and a unique that fulfills the conventions of genre but doesn’t fit easily packaged within them that it demands repeat lis-tens. The actual “packaging” however is something unique: A 12’’ with a screen printed jacket with printing on the inside, a triple sided (with an alternatively playing grooved third “side”) mastering job, heavy vinyl, one side given wide bands like the original Initial State LP, with inscriptions between tracks makes it an interesting artifact… None distract from the music – luckily all the mastering tricks still leave you with a pretty loud record – lyrics are mostly in German except for the three “side C” tracks.
