The 2002 demo from Chicago's INFESTATION OF ASS explodes in your speakers before the sound even comes out, and then it explodes again in your earholes. Such a fierce example of early century DIY fastcore, dabbling in melodic/metallic EuroCrust ("Focus") and not quite sure if they want to just blast - though it often feels like they might be more comfortable if they were just blasting ("No Name"). The mosh parts are deadly ("No Name" [again] and "Let's Fucking Go!" most notably) but they're back to blasting before you can get out of your chair...so best to just not sit.  I fucking love revisiting this shit.
