A sweet bout of raw-edged, bleeding-from-the-gills grind here from these Aussies that's part way between Discordance Axis and Iron Lung. Whilst not quite as batshit crazy as the former or as murderously bleak as the latter it delivers the goods with a firm, unwavering hand, all stop-start sonic bludgeon, jagged dissonance and harrowed vocals that seem to have a real sense of bloody-minded horror about them. Good stuff, then, and all wrapped up in a garish, somewhat OTT gatefold sleeve that could be considered slightly over-egging it for a one-sided 12 that spins at 45.
