Cry Now, Cry Later Volumes 1 & 2 (Pessimiser/P.O. Box 1070/Hermosa Beach, CA 90254)

By: Jeb Branin

The "Cry Now, Cry Later" series of double 7" compilations are some of the most potent collections of noise ever assembled. Each of the four volumes showcases the very best in extreme hardcore with an emphasis on such sub-genres such as power violence, sludgecore, grindcore, hatecore, blurrrrand whatever the other catch phrases are today. Suffice it to say this stuff is noisy, intense, and not for the meek. This CD combines the first two volumes in the series and adds a few bonus tracks. I assume the other two will get combined on a disc at a later date... Some of my favorite bands on the disc are SPAZZ, CROM, DESPISE YOU, EYEHATEGOD, GRIEF, CAPITALIST CASUALTIES, EXCRUCIATING TERROR, STAPLED SHUT, and FEAR FACTORY(recording under the name FACTORIA DE MIEDO to hide out from their label).The only truly weak link on the disc is THE MEATSHITS because Robert Deathrage is a sexist, violent idiot.
