Album Review

Ballast – “Sound Asleep ” – [Profane Existence]

Max Level   1/2/2006   12-inch, A Library

Thrashcore quintet crying out against the crushing oppression of modern society. Similar at times to fellow Canadians Submission Hold, but Ballast has a narrower, harder focus; more screaming in the vocals, louder guitars, and more constant violence in the bass/drums. I tend to like hardcore songs that have brief slow intros before all hell breaks loose, and there are a couple of those here. Between songs, there is only the briefest of pauses before the next assault is launched. One word review: Incendiary.
