Sick/Tired - King Of Dirt - LP
from my mates (is he a mate or not, I've forgotten) label
Atomic orange vinyl limited to 75 only worldwide
The LP finally sees the light of day. After messed up test presses to start off with and then a long awaited 2nd set to arrive, the record def had its share of problems (not by the bands end nor mine). This also is the debut record of new vocalist Adam Jennings, whom you may know best from Winters In Osaka. Adam's brutal vocals devestate on this more lo fi but still shining recording and the fact that Robert quit the band which at the time was a downer, was almost a 'godsend' seeing they got Adam to replace him and not slow down a thing. I mean, you can't hear it but his presence breathed new life into this band and seeing them live and thus more lively in that setting is awesome. Still playing tight and well executed fast grindcore with 80's thrash, doom, death metal and punk elements interwoven into the mix. Yet with all the posi print they get despite being a hard working band they're still so underrated, maybe due to the fact they're hindered due to work not allowing em' to tour a whole lot. It'd be nice to see that change with the release of this LP, which is without a doubt the best release these guys have to date easily and to be so bold one of the best grind albums of 2013. Most copies will also come with a bonus poster insert made by Kirk and Adam. The 1st 75 for mailorder are on custom 'ATOMIC ORANGE' wax (a nod to my close friend Adam Inverted of this band, think Miami Dolphins orange) - Nick Sick Cowabunga Records.
