Concrete Asylum- Concrete Asylum 7" review
Concrete Asylum- Concrete Asylum 7” review
Late-80s UKHC meets noisy Jap-core, be that Gauze or Disclose or anyone else. The guitar and drums are so loud they almost drown out the bass entirely and the vocals sound like a guy screaming as loud as he can from about 200 feet away- faint, but audible. This EP walks the line between noise punk and demo-quality thrash punk that falls just short of powerviolence. I fucking love the cover art and the layout of this record- it’s detailed, yet punk as fuck, not an easy effort to attain. However, I might need a couple tall boys of Steel Reserve to be able to fully rage to this band. Not bad, but not my kind of noise- still, room exists to evolve.
