Massgrave- S/T CD on Haunted Hotel Rec.
Mass Grave have been punishing crust punks, grind freaks, and their turntables since 2001, and after 6 split 7"s, a split 10", a split LP, one full length ep and one LP from over 5 years ago, their new self titled album features them at the top of their game, dominating with 15 crust war anthems. After spinning this massive slab of vinyl, you'll agree that angry, grinding crust is Vancouver, BC's finest export-- the production is excellent-- with a clear, realistic drum sound, a burly distorted bass tone, a hellish array of ominous, fast crust riffage, and vocals that are totally blown out and pissed off. 14 new tracks, along with a well-executed Capitalist Casualties cover ("Diamonds and Warheads"). This LP is both ripping and memorable, its catchy, and brutal as fuck!
