Tucked away in Okinawa Japan, for almost a decade Sow Threat has been pumping out some of the most rambunctious and explosive crustcore in the game. Firmly rooted in the classics (Extreme Noise Terror, Doom, Sore Throat, Napalm Death) without devolving into a noise-not-music crasher crust spectacle. This incredible debut album is now on vinyl, remastered and with new art/layout (i.e. different to the CD version on Straight Up Records). 

Some bands turn this style into a monotonous brutality, Sow Threat manages to write compelling songs and create a dynamic and engaging album. Some bands lack the appropriate energy and aggression to do this style justice, Sow Threat plays with a reckless intensity that oozes charisma and personality. Some bands are just plain too fucking metal, Sow Threat captures everything in a wonderfully raw (but not noisy) production that sounds straight out of classic 90's Nabate/Skuld/Profane Existence catalog. 

Cover art by the immensely talented Mr. Naito. 

For me, this is the crust smasher of the summer!
