Must admit that this is a very all-star split release. Famous Venomous Concept (with members of Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Corrupt Moral Altar) and Under Attack (with guys of Conniption, Discordance Axis, Suppression)… Maybe, this is just a small 7″, but man, it’s full of powerful hardcore and punk vibes!
It`s fucking insane, how could only a small group of people make so a huge mess? Venomous Concept blasts fast and scream very loud. Sweet production, good sound, and a ton of bone-crushing energy! With only 2 songs these gentlemen’s managed to smash you. Powerful guitar riffs and sound, low bass, good drum work, and angry yelling. Maybe it’s a basic kit but, these people making extreme music for decades, so they know a few good tricks. This sound of violence reminds me of the US school of hardcore (late 80th-mid 90th). Besides the hardcore base, this material has a strong metallic taste (this makes everything heavier).
Under Attack surprise me with its punchy and wicked energy! Holy shit, we have here top-notch stuff. Excellent hardcore with a good dose of punk, this music reminds me late 80th but not modern today, and that is awesome! Great crunchy sound of the guitar, the bass has a leading role here and that is the best! Drums have an old-fashioned sound (which is damn tasty), and a pissed-off vocal fits perfectly for such crazy music! Under Attack is a brilliant example of that how old school can kick ass even now! Don’t forget to play this 7″ loud and disturb your neighbors!
Remember guys, keep the underground music scene strong by supporting the artist/band/labels.
