Headless Death - A Hideous Warning LP
A torrent of sour mockery and high-octane self-loathing soaks through 20 songs of ferocious grindcore on 'A Hideous Warning', the debut album from Australia's Headless Death. Following a string of deservedly ignored demos, split contributions, and an "incredibly ugly" EP, these misanthropic clowns finally pulled their fingers out of their asses and birthed a true monster of tweaked out old school grind. Swarming riffs and bone-shattering blasts are capped off with an outrageously hostile vocal assault, producing an instant tension headache that only frontal lobotomy will cure. With members of Internal Rot, Rort, Contaminated, Pathetic Human and Roskopp, it comes off more like Plutocracy covering Repulsion in a speed battle with Noisear. Hypermanic to the point of self-combustion, this thing rockets along like a bullet train trying to drive off-road in a storm of unpredictable structure and demented force. Humiliation awaits.
