Extreme Noise Terror-Holocaust in my head
Holacaust in my head is the latest offering from Extreme Noise Terror. This one has 21 tracks of crust/grind/hardcore that range from fairly short blasts to more multi-placed attacks. These guys have been around since the mid 80's and have been largely doing this same style that whole time. In many ways the songs here sound like they could have been done in the late 1980's even down to the production and that's part of the charm of this album. The sound frequently reminds me of a mix of the likes of Discharge, Broken Bones, early Napalm Death, Cryptic Slaughter and others. They like speed and noise, but the raw old school hardcore sounds come into play frequently too. They also avoid the trap of having the songs sound so much alike because they really do mix up the sounds quite well. Certainly a good offering for fans of speed and noise.
