…if you like to challenge yourself and your psyche, this release is on par with anything else released this year, at the top of the pile of the viscerally bizarre.
An exclusive stream of the track Prayer Sheet by Sense Offender.
Get Wasted thrashes hard, the way crossover is supposed to, with a ton of hardcore punk attitude and energy.
Intentionally or not, the bands expose the ugly collective psyche of humanity, then spit on it with all the bile they can muster.
…the Texas quintet do so in a slow burn thrash track that is reminiscent of the classic thrash I grew up on, in terms of grit and delivery.
Taking full advantage of the strengths offered by each member, the band have spawned a dark, bombastic creation, rich with feeling, and full of twists and turns.
My hope is that more modern industrial will once again find the harrowing, ominous soul of the genre, as these two projects clearly have.
It’s the type of album that can be hard to write about objectively, because it’s really more about how it grabs me and about how it makes me feel, than it is about particular riffs, rhythms, or anything else.
