This was released by Fight Records, so I was expecting manic Finnish thrash. I was surprised to find some crust similar to AMEBIX or ANTISECT. ABSURD ATTITUDE were from Tampere, Finland, but the sound is very late-80's Britain. The guitar has a nice watery sound, but is able to switch over to a more metallic riff when necessary. The rhythm section lays down a very solid foundation with a tribal edge. There are two singers that have a similar tone, instead of going for the EXTREME NOISE TERROR-style low grunts and high-pitched screams. The recording sounds nice with the guitars and vocals dominating the mix. The drums are still prominent, but the cymbals are a little muted, which makes for a better sound. There is an unlisted track at the end of the B-side. It's a mid-paced instrumental with the occasional reverbed scream. This is definitely worth picking up if you can find it. This was ABSURD ATTITUDE's final release. I will definitely look for their earlier material.
