This split is relentless and will hurt your ears in a charming way, fun frantic ear-splitters from start to finish.
FUCK ON THE BEACH (Japan)
If you don't know what to expect here I can't really help, this is brutal, light speed clattering blasts, razor-wire treble drenched guitar and whirling layered screaming at it's finest. Plenty of ear splitting distortion, feedback, mics peaking and everything way too loud in the best way. This is fun loving fast-core power-violence from Japan which I'm pretty sure even has a 'clap-track' on the self titled outro track. Fucking excellent. This side of the split is primarily hyper fast d-beats with the odd blast thrown in, so is sonically the inverse of the Terlarang side. For fans of Japanese style everything faster and louder style grind-violence.
Lo-fi to the point of incomprehensibility this side of the split goes even further down the slopes of treble-valley than Fuck On The Beach, sounding like the guitars are physically tearing the speaker cones from the amp and the rest of the band are trying frantically to hold them back in. Everything here is fast, no slow at all on this side. Maybe one or two slightly slower than light speed d-beat smashers floating about in there but this is really all about the pace. The fast as fuck and don't care nature is epitomised by the cats on the split cover and the last track basically sounding like black metal but being called 'Stop The Hate' in what seems to be a conscious rejection of the bullshit ideals of traditional NSBM. Nice.
