This one is a face-ripper!
Enjoy Hayduke’s Top 50 of 2021 list.
This album is a masterpiece that will continue to unsettle me for years to come. Take note.
Operation Just Cause bangs hard by going straight for the jugular and never letting go.
Though each band clearly has their own style, the whole is as cohesive as it is crushing, exquisite as it is eviscerating.
Music is often somewhat visual for me, but rarely is it as viscerally visual as this album.
The EP has the ominous intent of black metal, the thick swampiness of dissonant death metal, and the feral abrasion of grindcore.
There is nothing soft about either track, though there is plenty of skill displayed in the mauling they give us.
The album is sometimes spastic, and rarely sits still long, even in the slower parts. And yet it all flows so well together.
