Label: What's Your Rupture
From four Danish teens tripping over each other and speeding up when their trigger fingers get itchy, here are 12 songs totaling about 24 minutes. But this isn't hardcore. Concision or no, the closest "punk" precedent might be Killing Joke -- for the somber moods, staggering march-steps, repetitive structures, and metallic chord progressions. Exasperated Euro-accents are buried in barely produced blur, monotoned through congested adenoids, and indecipherable save for pessimistic titles ("Rotting Heights," "Total Drench," "Collapse") that serve as hooks of a sort -- as do occasional coughs.
