Kontrasekt- End of Destruction 12" review

Kontrasekt- End of Destruction 12” review
Drenched in reverb and apocalyptic overtones, this diabolic d-beat trio is at first glance rather simple and cookie-cutter:  “Oh fuck,” you think, “Not another goddamned Discharge/Confuse/Totalitar rip-off!”  Not this time, true DIS-believers.  There is something subtly sophisticated and differently dissonant about this band- maybe it’s lyrics, a more intelligent approach to cacophonous music, or an unidentified attribute to the entirety of the band altogether.  Whatever it may be, it takes the seemingly drab and done D-beat raw punk sound and enhances it, makes it seem fresh and new once more.  The guitar tone is just right, the vocals akin to a B-12 bomber over Berlin, and the drums the thundering crash of the bombs as they hit- war time music for anti-propagandists, to be sure.  Suitable music to be played at the nearest Gathering of the Crusties, though these cats aren’t rank and file- they outrank and take cuts, and it’s just as well, for they should.
