HARDWARES

COMPLETE FAILURE

The Art Gospel Of Aggravated Assault

(Season Of Mist Records)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.5

One of my favourite things about this group of grinding, punk-y, power violence-y, bass-heavy crust dudes from Pittsburgh is their insane production sound, all bass and all grime, here on album three as horrible and ugly as ever, showcasing the drums, as it should: this guy smokes. The playing on 'Head Hanger To Be' is seriously worth checking out, all frantic and ahead of the beat and just insane all around, especially come mid-song breakdown time. But there's more than crazed drumming here, there's a band that admirably lives on the edge of grind and sludge, two genres that share little in common musically but much in common in spirit, and (using d-beat hardcore as the bridge) COMPLETE FAILURE embrace both genres with much care, love, and spirit, delivering an almost unbearable amount of sonic intensity in an economic 22 minutes. How does it compare to their last two? That's like asking how the last time you stubbed your toe compared to to the two times before that. It's all pain. Sweet, sweet pain.
