Now I’m as big a Prankophile as the next chap but this one’s fairly fucking wretched in my book. “Prosthetic Screams” = melodic anarcho punk that’s been dragged through the glossy rock ringer and had any rough edges buffed beyond recognition. Sure, the riffs are crunchy and driving and the gal singing has a fair ol’ howl on her, but just about every moment makes my skin crawl and I can’t be dealing with it. Other folks have mentioned the Wipers and the Avengers in the same breath as this lot, but nah: they’re wrong and this sucks.
