Yet another blast of sonic offal from the open sewers of upstate New York, this time paired up with an awesomely and equally obnoxious Canadian noisecore duo called Harsh Supplement. Like everything else that I've picked up from Continuum., it's an ultra low-fi, disgusting cacophony, for extreme blurr freaks only. Harsh Supplement's side vomits up an unstated amount of barbaric micro-bursts of noxious noisecore, an endless volley of three-second spasms of speedfreak drumming and incomprehensible bass guitar slop, all bellowed into a cheap four track recorder through peals of feedback and basement reverb, with what sounds like an enraged ape bellowing and grunting over the whole thing. This shit is hideous, old-school simian noisecore in the vein of Seven Minutes Of Nausea, utterly unmusical and headache-inducing stuff from these two sickos. Appropriately, their friends in Hades Mining Co. up the ante with their own brain-damaged noisecore assault, barfing up their own jarringly edited stew of pilfered stand-up comedy bits, random dialogue, fucked-up punk rock, weird noises, and berserker blurr that all could very well have been recorded on a hand-held tape recorder, the sound muffled by a suffocating, all-encompassing haze of pot smoke. Zero coherence, zero intelligence, and a total blast. Issued in a limited edition of one hundred fifty copies. Crucial Blast
Here is a small D.I.Y. cassette that contains a lot of dirt, mold, and noise. It was released by the boys from Harsh Supplement on their own label. I honestly could not understand what the hell it is on the cover art. This abstraction remains a mystery to me))) There is much talk about the music of AG, but I just simply enjoy each of their releases. Agathocles is one of those bands that does not invent a bicycle again, they just continue doing what they can do best. This split will kick your ass with 12 tracks of good old AG. Raw material with dirty sound but at the same time is completely readable. Mincecore flavored with some punk dirt. Classic Belgian aggressiveness and courage, all right there. By the way this material was recorded at their permanent Studio Geel (Belgium) in 2013. PS: anyone can tell what is the current count of releases by these Belgians? Harsh Supplement - classic noisecore. I can not say that the guys could really surprise me, but I just can not say it's crap. Aggressive, chaotic, noisy, in the foreground is screaming and ass kicking drummer, guitar is a bit lost there, but it's cool, since it makes it even more noisy. It's nice that everything is played live, not produced on a computer at home. Rating - Agathocles: 7,5 / 10 Harsh Supplement: 7/10 Good Guys Go Grind!
