RSJ Gain To Nothing Hangman's Joke Recordings (2007)


New extreme metal that is brutal. With an album and a couple of EPs under their belt, this album sees them continue in their extreme ways.

Thrash would be too mainstream a description; try a mixture of nu, alt and death. If vocals could be screamed and growled at the same time, these do.

Dark thrash rhythms and bass lines are laden with guitar that ranges from speed to thrash to the disjointed noises you get from alternative, with variation within each track.

'Deadbolt' is a standout, encompassing their repertoire. Imagine your local neighbourhood unfriendly warlock undergoing every angry mood swing possible, starting being mildly pissed off. Too extreme to be progressive but you get the idea.

Some of the slower tracks are brutal yet melodic. Moments in 'Code Zero' show the way.

Cover CD stars for 'Terrorizer', they're already getting good reviews and if you can appreciate extreme you will see why.

Worth checking out if you want a headache.
