Hi-Jacked Reality (LP)

Black Water - 10 €

Debut LP by this Portland, Oregon hardcore band who are clearly quite into early Finnish punk like Appendix and Mellakka.
While not quite as melodic as either of those bands, Rotten Cadaver certainly don't lack anything in the speed and aggression departments, bashing out a noisy, nasty racket that could sit right alongside those early Finnish classics as it could against Disorder or Short, Sharp, Shock-era Chaos UK.
Ripping stuff, and absolutely killer, full-color artwork by Japanese artist Sugi to boot!
