This was the 2007 full length CD by these germany ultra fast hardcore legend - Yacopsae, released under Obscene Recs. The production is quite similar in quality to that given to previous Yacopsae works; you've got extremely upfront percussion right in your face, hard and gritty guitar sound, huge snare drum bludgeon and also hot killing voice stirred into the middle of it all. The strength of this band comes in a very noisy shape and that simple fact is the standard of the entire album. Actually..., that fact will also mean headaches and maybe heart attacks in some people.
Like Narcosis, they batter you with sections of splattered grind before suddenly stopping and starting with deadly accuracy, or they chuck in a bit of respite in the shape of a rocking catchy bit. Nothing you wouldn't expect then, but it is damn good. This is all pretty much sung in German so I have no idea what they're on about precisely, but I imagine lyrics are of a political nature.
Yes, there are some good moments and a couple of different paces inside this record. It is the 5% of the whole piece though, the 95% is just like I already explained. For you who still know nothing about this band, i'll tell you that the band's been grinding around from over 15 years since established in 1990.
