I can't really put my finger on exactly what CRAWL did right on this tape, but I cannot stop listening to this 6 minute shit attack. Crushing powerviolence that sounds like it was recorded with one room mic in the deepest recesses of a very large cave. Even though they would probably hate the idea (I guess this from songs like "Hipster Chokehold"), I feel like CRAWL add an art bent to the simple hate filled start/stop/fast/faster approach to the genre, and the quality of the recording lends weight even more to this opinion. 8 tracks in just under 6 minutes, and that includes a tape hiss and noise ensemble that plays out the final two minutes of the tape. CRAWL fucking rules hard, get into it. I am having surgery today, and I hope this is what it will sound like while I fall asleep.
