So, what do you need to know about Weekend Rocker then by these Halifax lads, the Booji Boys then? It’s brief, I mean – at 12 tracks and 27 minutes (one of those tracks being over 7 minutes long) you barely have time to gulp a mouthful of air as another song launches itself at you from a huge stack of speakers.
Blanck Mass – World Eater
Blanck Mass is the rebooted spectrum of Hal and Mother recording an album together (and succeeding) in hell, melting through the goddamn walls faster than you can say Game Over Man, Game Over. World Eater hits hard, full ramming speed, never letting up or letting go. It’s Crank – if Power slows down, it’s all over.
Godhole Vs Crozier – Anthrophobia 7″
*Scratches head* best not to over-analyse this one. More of an artistic concept that actual music; this collaboration between Edinburgh destruction merchants Godhole and Vile Noise mastermind Crozier has crawled from the foetid and pungent streets to say hello.
Isolation Tank – S/T EP
London beat-combo Isolation Tank are no stranger to Keep It Fast, having reviewed their split EP with fellow crackpots, Art Of Burning Water back in November last year. They haven’t mellowed at all – far from it. Their new self-titled EP is an ugly, acidic affair that is ready to corrode and chew away with it’s bludgeoning and indignant power.
Art of Burning Water / Isolation Tank – Start Tomorrow
Bring on the pain. Two more acts that want to strip away any conception that we’ll be having a joyous last few weeks of 2014 and rightly so. Total and utter destruction is on the cards. Art of Burning Water and Isolation Tank are hear to smash your ears to bits with this new split EP
Girl Band – De Bom Bom 7″
The opening guitar-scrape on De Bom Bom is a crackling, guttural distort and feels more in common with the industrial pound and stuttering electronica of Black Dice or the bonkers psychosis of The Assdroids.
Lovgun/Higgs Boson – Split 7″
Clocking in at an impressive 13 minutes and comprising of 20 tracks (1o a piece), this Split EP is a devastatingly short, brutal and indignant attack of short, sharp blasts of power violence, grindcore, hardcore and amusing samples from Glengarry Glenross.
