Do you love to skate? Do you love loud and fast music? Then this 7” is for you! The German boys from Trash Tape Therapy just released a new EP. An EP charged with a good portion of nuclear energy and dreadful speed. To be honest I didn’t know about this band, but the fact that this noise was released by Rodel rec forced me to draw my attention to this name. A week after its release I found this EP in my mailbox, that was a nice surprise. So the core of the band is Toby (Violent Frustration / Turtle Rage), I know that he loves skate culture, but I didn’t know that he is a horror movie freak. That’s right, everything here (begins from the artwork and ends with the lyrics) is built around a horror theme, yeah that is not new, but it always works well. As for the music, hm, I didn’t hear anything extraordinary, but these tunes are good, simple and honest, which is important.
Here are a few details about this spicy material:
Blast beats, thrash metal-influenced riffs (at least some of them), vocals which range from screams to growls… these are all things that you will find here. The guitar tone sounds punkier, but with nice buzzing vibrations. The general sound is not overloaded with heaviness, I think that is the main reason why it sounds cheerful and energetic. As I have already said, the guys used a couple of kinds of vocals, that positively affect the whole picture. As for the drums. They sound normal, the snare sound is not so good… but that does not ruin everything.
If you love grindcore/fastcore, and love to discover new bands, try to listen to this squad, I bet you won’t regret it.
