Raise Your Hands If You Can Say "Grindcore"

Most kids these days will hear something along the lines of Avenged Sevenfold and System of a Down and consider it the heaviest thing ever recorded in the history of music. With all due respect to the former acts (and though they may be more technically advanced), in the way of noise, no one holds a candle to Melt-Banana. Most of the songs are sound collages, but the way that they resonate through the speakers and into your cerebellum makes them the most amazing sound collages you may ever get to hear. This album is a collection of their singles and EPs dating back to their first session with Charnel House. Most of the songs are under two minutes, unlike the band's future work, but they make them count. Melt-Banana lined up with A.C., the Berzerker, and the Locust is the sonic equivelant of ramming a Heinkel knife intoyour stoumach (yes, in a good way). From the droppped-A bass furor of "Ketchup-Mess" to the hardcore punk of "Wrest the Wrist" to the truly banal pounding of "Stick Out", this is a perfect introduction to Melt-Banana, and noise-rock and grindcore itself.

Weird but cool

the title says everything

sound pollution
