Obsessed By Speed – S/T

I caught myself thinking that we didn’t write anything about the crust sub-genre recently. I want to fix it with debut album from Obsessed By Speed. This is a pretty new band with the members of many good/old Spanish bands, so these guys are not new in this music, hehe.
I liked the cover art of this CD. Yes it’s simple, but it colorized (finally something not in black/white traditions, hahaha), and everything looks harmonious. There is no question to the artist and designer, but I have some questions about the music…

I won’t lie, I didn’t hear anything new and cool for myself. Material is good… simple, fast, straight with nice metal-punk touch… sound quality is nice too. But I simply can’t hear and feel the fire and energy in these songs. Even two guitars can’t turn the mood into the right way… I don’t know what went wrong, but we have what we have. Because of the lack of energy I feel myself bored, somewhere on the middle of the album. Believe me or not but I don’t feel happy with this situation… these tracks are cool and they deserve to be re-recorded.
