PSYCHO "The grind years" CD
well, well, well, this is the absolute collector discography CD of the mighty PSYCHO sickos. you'll find here 52 tracks from their split 7" sides, 7" comp. and the "Mass consumption" 7" + 5 bonus video tracks from their australian tour in 92. "The grind years" present the 1990-1994 period of the band when they came to the grind side.
it starts with nearly normal vocals from the A.C. and MEATS SHITS splits time to the growling vocals of the ROT, NASUM and BLOOD splits time. Johnny X vocals are really in the good old way of grind voices ala AGATHOCLES, ROT, ... the Music is still energetic with grind/HC riffs, some HC/Thrash catchy solos and the drum blasts of Mister Charlie Infection.
about the sound, don't expect to hear the old vinyl sound, i think it has been remastered 'coz you'll have it here good, clear and brutal with aggressive guitar and pounding drums sound. the general atmosphere reminds me of great HIDEOUS MANGLEUS, ROT or SEXORCIST releases, raw fucking grind !!
concerning the artwork, the cover is fun and coloured, the booklet contains a short preface by Johnny X and a postscript by Charlie Infection, some cool drawings, many old photos and flyers plus all the covers of the 7".
this is a great release by SelfMadeGod and a must have for all the fans of PSYCHO.
to the newly grind listeners : be cautious, this is the true sound of the golden age of grind, simple, raw, effective and straight in your face !
