Extreme Noise Terror - "Extreme Noise Terror" (Album Review)

By: Dan Caycedo

Album Type: Full Length
Date Released: 05/11/2015
Label: Willowtip Records


Perhaps calling them a political band isn’t 100% accurate, but get on this one pronto, it’s worth a few dozen spins and a few dozen bricks in the face of police brutality.  The guitars and bass shred throughout with brutal vocals that are both guttural and explosive. The production side of things on this release is way better than most of their previous efforts and even though the guitars and drums are at like 1000 bpm, there is still plenty of clarity to distinguish what the hell is going on during this 13 song assault.

The Review:
Extreme Noise Terror is back at it with another ripping grindcore album. They’ve been emasculating ear drums since 1985, U.K. style. On this new release the drums have kept it true with straight forward d-beat fuck you in the face beats. Guitars and bass shred throughout with brutal vocals that are both guttural and explosive. The production side of things on this release is way better than most of their previous efforts as well. Even though the guitars and drums are at like 1000 bpm there is still plenty of clarity to distinguish what the hell is going on in this 13 song assault.
My favorite track by far is “No One is Innocent”. The song starts off with a sick drum fill/intro leading into solid guitar riffs ending the song off with a spot on chorus of “No one is innocent.”  The song, “Last Fix of Fame”, is also a good crusher, which will give you some authority issues if you don’t have them already. It’s set for max chaos and destruction putting a big smile on my face every time I listen to it. Terror like this has no place in radio land and it better off kept underground for all the futureless crust punks.
Song titles like, “I Like Coca (Outo “I Like Cola”)”,Cage Paralysis” and “Punk Rock Patrol” keeps their seriousness at bay and with penchant for humour, perhaps calling them a political band isn’t 100% accurate, but get on this one pronto, it’s worth a few dozen spins and a few dozen bricks in the face of police brutality.
