Capitalist Casualties
Planned Community 6" (Six Weeks Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Almost every fan of power violence and 90s thrash would agree that CAPITALIST CASUALTIES is one of the greatest bands ever. Over the years they have repeatedly set a standard by which other extreme hardcore bands are compared. Each and every release by them is mandatory. "Planned Community" is no exception. Unfortunately, as a result of either mediocre production or poor mastering (or both) the sound on this record is pretty thin and robs it of a lot of its punch. On the plus side nothing can dull the pure bitterness and angst that jumps off these grooves. CAPITALIST CASUALTIES unleashes its venom on the soulless drones of suburbia and the emotional and intellectual wasteland planned communities far too often become. Their relentless thrash is a perfect soundtrack to hell many people experience in townships that pride themselves on being bland. You gotta check it out. Countless record-collector-dork bonus points are awarded for the 6" format, as well.15
