Gasp
Drome Triler of Puzzle Zoo People (Slap-A-Ham Records)

By: Jeb Branin

MAN IS THE BASTARD is the premiere first generation power violence band and their influence is felt far and wide in the genre but not until now has their penchant for musical diversity been matched and built upon. GASP is unreal! Their music is a bizarre, yet dead on, marriage of extreme hardcore, noise, industrial, and avant garde. I've never heard anything quite like it and certainly nothing even close to it that is so effective and powerful. I have GASP's first demo, but even that didn't prepare me for the amazing noise on this CD. One moment GASP will be driving you into the dirt with a massively heavy barrage of hardcore then shift fluidly into psychotic noise patterns that will trip you out. It is like the musical realization of that semi-conscious state you pass through when waking up slowly; that not quite awake but no longer asleep time when your perceptions are completely askew. The evolutionary jump this band has made in unprecedented in power violence. This CD will undoubtedly be looked back on as a seminal recording in extreme music and has already thrown the door wide open as to the future possibilities of the scene.
