Fuck On The Beach
Power Violence Forever (Slap-A-Ham)

By: Jeb Branin

Screeched vocals, frantic guitars, whirlwind beats, and sheer aural overload have become this band's trademark and this debut full length certainly only adds to that reputation. I don't know what has gotten into these boys but it must be akin to nitroglycerin because this is unbelievably explosive. Fastcore on overdrive. F.O.B. don't do the tough guy shtick, they don't worry about being heavier than thou, instead they opt for chaos, frenzy, speed, and more speed. Listening to this album is almost like drowning, there is never a chance to come up for breath. There isn't even a break between tracks... every cut bleeds into the next. A little over 20 tracks in a little over 20 minutes plus on the CD version an entire live set that is worth the price of this sucker alone. When I listen to this baby I can't help but remember the first time I heard D.R.I's debut record. It is that overwhelming! F.O.B. have catapulted themselves to the forefront of the Japanese fastcore scene with this disc and only a fool would pass it up.
