Interesting viewpoint, going against the grain in speedcoreland.
I think Tron is as far away as one could be from people like No Name and Taciturne, yet still remain in the same speedcore / hardcore music category.
But I think the Fischkopf people and... See full review

This is an interesting album. The style of all tracks is monotone minimal techno. Slow, hypnotic, repetitive.
But, something original about Paul Birken's work is that you can hear a lot of funny, funky sample usage. There is a sense of happiness and... See full review

When I initially heard this release, I didn't like it.

Now that I look back on it, this is perhaps no less than one of the most experimental hardcore releases I know off.
Joshua's previously released NRTX 05 is far more "straightforward". That one is... See full review

"This Is The Life" captures my attention here.
A typical track of early 2000s Dutch mainstyle, especially on the Megarave label and its sublabels. 150-ish BPM. Lots of Pinhead vocals and some reverb-laden synths create an anthem-like, but still... See full review

'91 is truly encapsulating what Rave and House music is all about.
Succinctly produced.
'91 is the magic of sound influencing the body. Instigating goose bumps and hypnotizing the mind, bringing you memories of... THE ZONE. Electro-acoustic shamanism.

By no means it is the only X-mas-themed gabber release I dig.

Because, it has that typical Shockwave-style (originators of terror and speedcore) with a Christmas theme. It just has that little... See full review

When played at 33 instead of 45, I discovered that Picture Systa sounds like a downtempo industrial doomy track, which is also quite nice. The track works at both speeds, brutality ensured either way!

Quite a lot in the same vein as Mortician. But with less horror samples, and an even dirtier, slimy sound. Deliciously distorted and downtuned guitars, especially the bass. Pushing the limits of dirty, guttural, distorted-bass grind & death metal.
Top.

This has got to be one of Charlotte's most Acid-oriented releases so far.
This may even please fans of acidcore and tekno.
The bassdrum is moderately distorted, evoking the analog sounds of old.
Amar finishes the EP off in an acid-ambient vibe.
