Cripple Bastards – Desperately Insensitive

up_030804_crippledThis long time Italian Grind/Punk entity is back again with 19 new raw and aggressive ditties. I haven’t heard a lot of their material, but this is better produced than most of what I have heard, raw but full production, that doesn’t betray the power of the music itself as some instances in the past have. This is simply put, energetic, contagious, Grind with it’s Punk influences out in the open. Including the instrument tones, it doesn’t have a bloated “metal” production, it’s instead ragged but potent. They mix up the timing, and still keep it largely fast, the drum playing has a real personality to it, the vocals vary from throat scarred shouts and goblin screams to guttural growls, and the playing is tight and full of heart. The tracks have their own character and stay interesting throughout. It’s a great listen, because the fun had in making it is obvious and there is so much adrenaline here. Also comes with a huge lyric foldout, that is pretty cool. Awesome. – Scott
