Bad Human Side: Bad Human rips through six tracks in a whopping three and a half minutes. These are maniacal jobs of powerviolence that dance back and forth between raw and punishing on one hand and then dip into a groove for a few seconds, before snapping you back out of it. Lyrically, they are angry and misanthropic. This is all raw passion. “You die, you die, you die, you die…”
Spit Side: Spit gives only five tracks in nearly four minutes. I don’t know what they’re thinking with these long tracks. (kidding, of course) They’re side starts out with: “You kill yourself, you kill yourself…” so there are some thematic similarities here. Musically, there are definitely some powerviolence segments, but they also get significantly grindier. The shred you are well as pummel you. Again, raw passion is the order of the day.
These are sparse composition reliant on emotion and passion, with anger being the primary. Make know mistake though, when you’ve had a tough day and just need to come home, vent, and flail for awhile, this is exactly what you want.
