Winds of Genocide – Usurping the Throne of Disease – Pulverised Records – Release: January 26th 2015.
Well, this is a welcome bucket of noise! I don’t know much about this particular genre of D-Beat/Crust Punk/death metal, but if I were to put up an easy example of what Winds of Genocide sounds like it would be a mix of Bolt Thrower’s “In Battle There is no Law”, with a healthy dosage of Motörhead and black metal.
You get thrown into the unholy assault and by the time it’s over, which is none too long, you immediately have an itch to replay the album. It’s energetic, loud, raw and pure. It’s not exactly polished and that’s definitely one of the things I like most; good honestly recorded music without much fiddling about. Special mention for the catchy basslines which usually seem to be buried among the other instruments in other releases and big props to the vocals which sound delightfully nasty. Disease-ridden vocals vomited right into your ears!
Score: 3.8 out of 5
