Saturday Morning Power Violence 7" (Slap A Ham Records)
By: Jeb Branin
Although not GODSTOMPER's first release, this 7" is their first real "studio quality" release. That has some good and bad points. The good is that the raging bass and blistering drums are right in your face with all the rawness intact but none of the muddiness found on their other stuff. The bad is that with the new found clarity some of the limitations of only having two instruments (plus vox) are painfully obvious. In spite of the noisy, finger frying fret work of the bass and the double bass machine gun of the drums the sound is sometimes thin. >From all reports this band are an absolute storm live with a frantic stage presence and a massive sound, this record hints at that but doesn't quite catch the full impact of a live show. Maybe another bass or two would beef things up although that will rob GODSTOMPER of some of their novelty... Still a solid release and a must have for extreme hardcore freaks (like me).
