Words Of Concrete-Negative Vibes reviewed by Mark J.
Dresden’s heaviest and hardest are back with a hostile (is that a triple H attack?) release that genuinely crept up on me from the first track. Not only does this album really go for the jugular, it has an esoteric and underlying almost hip hop or beat driven vibe throughout. While I definitely get a buzz off the beatdown genre, this is a cut above most artists in that field. Take the title track, it has groove and abrasive guitar structure as well as a fantastic well though-out and solid rhythm base. Vocals are A grade crazy and ferocious, but executed in a exceptionally accurate style on every track. Does it have a touch of Malevolence (Sheffield’s finest Beat Down Hardcore kings) about the album?, well indeed as their vocalist guests on a solid track here but only in terms of delievering a completely unadulterated masterpiece. This release is fantastically impressive and original, no scrawny songs here; a definitive 5 out of 5 shotgun shells to your stomach.
