Ripping and unrelenting. Russia's MINEFIELD deliver a near perfect version of Y2K thrashcore, blazing through 6 songs in five fukkn minutes. Maybe you're too cool for this, maybe you outgrew this subgenre in your teens and now you listen to painful rehashes of RAMONES songs in the style of trite garage punk...and maybe you're a fool. The power of this shit cannot be denied, no matter how much your jeans cost or how good your haircut is. Dust off your circle pit, these riffs are going to make the place explode...when "Взаперти" kicks in after the drum roll intro? You know you've been thrashed, and you know you like it, the same way you feel when the guitar drops to a steady mosh pace at the start of "Сосчитаны и пронумерованы." From the always excellent Drunk With Power (or here if you don't speak Pусский). Put this shit on repeat...there's a RAW POWER cover too. Relentless.

Seriously, how can you not want to hang out with these dudes?

This is great. I was in my mid-20s when the first thrashcore revival happened and was super stoked on it. Glad to see younger kids still making this kind of noise.
