One of the joys of oldskool hardcore is how much of it was made by producers who didn't necessarily have any musical knowledge, but wanted to have a go anyway. Occasionally this results in tunes with an...unconventional approach to melody. Sometimes it just doesn't work, but sometimes it gives a tune a certain wonky charm.

And this EP is probably the best example - full riffs and melodies that seem to be competing against each other rather than complementing. Zone 8 in particular sounds like three completely different tunes playing over each other at points. But it manages to sound *so* wrong that all the clashing riffs and dissonance somehow sounds like it's just following some alternative musical rules and it works, in an insane way. A perfect example of the sort of organised chaos that hardcore is all about.
