With the back of this CD listing forty-one tracks I automatically expected some fierce blasting grindcore to explode through the speakers, so I was a bit thrown off guard when it instead was speedy and crunchy crustcore-styled music that reached my ears. I'm sure this Brazilian unit have listened to "Scum" a number of times, but I'm guessing they've been blasting the collected works of bands like Doom a lot more, alongside a healthy dose of crude Swedish hardcore as well - especially noticeable in the Shitlickers-styled guitar sound they have on a couple of the recordings. They offer a few covers of Lärm, Ripcord, Mob 47, and Crude SS on here and those serve as an indication on how they sound as well.
This CD compiles the split EP w/I.A.F. (1994), "Bomb Scars" LP (1997), split EP w/Dischord (1999), split LP w/Battle of Disarm (1999), as well as tracks from the upcoming split LP w/Reltih and two more unreleased tunes. It's possible that to go through these seventy-two minutes in one sitting might be a bit much, but on the other hand they maintain the same quality throughout so if you've heard one recording from the band and liked it you'll like all of what they have to offer. If you haven't heard the band before but are in the mood for raw and brutal mid- to fast-paced crustcore you know where to look. [Krogh - September 5, 2009]
