Membrane – Membrane – [Byllepest Distro]

Ardent Execration Adoration

Cacophonous Hardcore punk at a breakneck pace..

Squealing walls of feedbacking guitars, buried diaphragmatic bellows, drumsticks raining from heaven upon booming toms, furiously impatient two note (and sometimes more) solos, vigorous punk rock bass.

There is something familiar about this flavor of testosterone (¿probably?) fueled animosity. The channeling of near boundless energy into an uncompromised expression of sweeping dissatisfaction. It’s nothing new… but it is fresh. Piping hot right outta Oakland, pressed by Oslo’s Byllepest Distro. It’s comfortable for me… like John Denver or Joan Baez is for my mom. Now where is my ascot and black smoking jacket with the velvet lapels? I aim to retire presently, to the study and reflect for a spell on my youth, and when I used to, as I once said, fuck… shit… up.

An allusion to a fun and catchy D-beat exists online but I beg to differ. This isn’t fun at all. This is a vehement display of force designed to rend with six short blasts that aim for the throat.

No discernable FCC’s
