Drum Machine Madness 1 sided 7" [green wax] (Robotic Empire)

By: Jeb Branin

Apparently this record took forever to come together, but it was worth the wait. It take five drum machine driven grind bands, WADGE, PILGRIM FETUS, NEMO, ALIEN CRUCIFIXION, and AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, and brings them together for one track each on a one-sided 7" on swirled color vinyl. In collector geek value, on a scale of "Yawn" to "Hot Damn," this rates a "Hell Yeah." Musically, WADGE's opening track definitely makes the strongest impression here, showing that grind with a drum machine really can GRIND. Some of the other tracks don't fair quite as well, with the drum machines sounding more like bubble wrap popping than anything solid enough to serve as a foundation for extreme music, but the frantic and reckless delivery of the music helps compensate. Fortunately the good heavily outweighs the bad and the closing ANb track bookends the record nicely as they spit out one of their trademark venom-laced bursts of hypercore. No lyrics provided, but when it comes to recent ANb, no lyrics is a definite plus. This record is going fast. You better order now.
