A horrible hack

The Scar Of Lead

Year Released: 2008

Following on from the recent reissue of ‘The Spider…’ ep, Age (aka Armed Government Error) offer up another mighty sacrifice to the volcano gods of metallic crust. There’s no let up in either their ferocity or the madness of their solos! The needle drops, guitars wail, followed by a guttural hog scream, and off we go. For my money Age is one of the finest of the current Japanese crop. Their ‘Four Wings’ lp and the aforementioned ‘The Spider Controls Your Emotions’ ep are up there with anything even the mighty Framtid have to offer. It’s skin blistering metallic crust for fans of their fellow countrymen Effigy, or Portland’s Hellshock. Top drawer.
Recommended record by Collective Zine!
