Disabuse was a Canadian band who played raw crust punk. Most of you may say that this is just one more band from dispunk army… maybe, but this compilation album is worth of try. This squad had a short life, guys recorded only two tapes, and then Disabuse were done. After that few members started legendary Existench (but I will tell you about this band in another review). It’s obvious that the heroes of our story were inspired by mighty Discharge, but they also used some primitive grindcore vibes.
All together this red LP contains 20 raw songs. I think this is a great flashback for all crust lovers, especially when it’s not real to find these cassettes.
Keep it in your mind that this material is damn old and, probably, was recorded in someone’s garage. Amateurish, raw, disgusting but full of fun that’s how I can describe this sound pollution. I want to highlight the vocals, both, growls and screams sound savage. I love how this bass sound too and how it cluttered the guitar. Drums are a bit sloppy but I still enjoy them much.
Primitive riffing, caveman energy… this is how punk supposed to sound. And of course, there were no hipsters back then, all bands played like in last time with fire in their arses. With all responsibility, I declare that Disabuse is one of these real/anti-posers bands!
