Review by: Alex Deller
Ten tracks here from a band intent on tearing off the top of your head and pourig boiling acid on the sickly meat of your brain. Slant’s taut, urgent hardcore is wound like a snare that pulls tighter every time you move and delivered with blast furnace intensity, bringing to mind a boiling-point mix of Uniform Choice, Punch and I Shot Cyrus. Each song is lean, cruel and perfectly formed, loaded with desperate energy and exploding like a hand grenade lobbed in a log chipper. It’s utterly SAVAGE, and the more I spin it the more I need to hear. Absolutely ferocious, and absolutely essential!
