There is something special going on in Halifax, Nova Scotia and if it weren't so very far from my house then I would go there myself and investigate further. CONCRETE ASYLUM crank out fiercely aggressive hardcore with shouted vocals that owe more to Ian Mackaye than anything from Japan, but the guitars are the reason they are featured on this fine Monday...think the S.H.I.T. demo but way more fukkd sounding, faster, and completely dominated by the guitars. The other elements are excellent, but they are also secondary, this romp is all about an assault on an innocent six string bystander - just a blur of madness interrupted by crucial riffs. "Spit To Me" is the song of the day.
The entire demo is included twice. The version labeled "(noise)" is the way my cassette sounds. I am quite certain that this is a defect, but nonetheless I think that pure Noise Not Music fans will eat it up. The version labeled "(clean)" is likely closer to what the band intended.
