It's one of those sad stories about bands that have been around for a while, catch the ears of listeners, and then call it quits. After 17 years, Jesus Crost called it quits recently. With that being said, that doesn't mean you shouldn't give this a spin. You'd be right to laugh at, or with, the cover for "1986". It's goofy, but looks are quite deceiving. I was initially expecting some campy grind, but instead the result is a very nice mixture of grind, slam, and power violence. If you've purchased anything on Bones Brigade, you would agree that this is a welcome place for these songs. To start off, I'd like to point out that if you're looking for slam riffs akin to a band like Abominable Putridity, you're out of luck, but keep listening. The slam parts in the songs are very short, but still catch you off guard with a pleasant groove which is more aligned to the power violence piece, or the grindcore that's oozing from this release. Vocal styles are harsher with the screams and have a lot of brees, but they don't wear out the songs due to the varied approaches. Lament in the fact that this band is no longer making extreme music, but relish in this release.
