One of those ridiculous hardcore records that's so good but kinda defies most descriptive attempts. The sound is large, cloying and all encompassing, with riffs that seem to be trying to pull off your arms at the same time as headbutting you. Then there are these punishing wah wah-destroyed solos and sneering vocals that sound English despite the band hailing from New York. Eh?! Anyway, it's GREAT: threatening, destructive, disgusting and redemptive all at once, and if you can listen to closing track 'Insane' without punching yourself in the jaw at least twice then, well, there's probably no hope for you whatsoever...

Recommended record by Collective Zine!
