Seizure Crypt – You’ve Been Had (s/r)
Published on October 26th, 2012
This is Seizure Crypt’s third album as far as I can work out. The opening track is the endearingly rough sounding metal/hardcore track “Supernatural” and it features an ominous sounding riff, a man shrieking and a duck whistle. Hardcore tracks that feature duck whistles are pretty rare but should give you some indication where the band is coming from. There’s not much wrong with this album, it’s pretty well produced, it’s pretty well written and they sound like they had a lot of fun making it. What is wrong with Seizure Crypt is their horrible, horrible album covers. If there wasn’t a big picture of the album artwork just up there then I’d get you to try and guess what it looks like, but you can see it. It’s horrible. Like an attempt to induce epilepsy by using only clashing colours and they nearly damn well succeed. But music isn’t about artwork, it’s about…um…music and I defy you to listen to “One Way” or “Don’t Blink” without enjoying yourself .

I’d never heard of Pissed Jeans until I saw them live at ATP: Release The Bats a few years ago, and if ever a band were aptly named, they surely are, giving a decidedly rancorous performance (in a...
- All Dinosaurs – Rules Of Civility and Decent Behaviour (s/r)
An album that pretty much goes full tilt from beginning to end aside from witty clips from some dubious sounding B movies, it’s of a similar provenance to Retox, Burning Love etc but with slightly v...
- Citizens – CTZNS (Wolf Among Wolves)
This is the second album by Scottish progressive hardcore band Citizens and it's a total pleasure from start to finish. Serpentine riffs that never fail to impress and surprise, pneumatic production...
