Dirty Feral HC from DC informed by chaotic 80s HC greats like Void, Neos, and Sodom’s ADK omnibus tracks (!!!!!!!) . An amazing six songs in Five minutes, all played by one chapped millennial (who went on to do the Hologram ep on LVEUM if you’re a members of type of wank). Definitely barking up the same tree as Nosferatu – young men trapped in the 21st century playing crazy hardcore that could as well be from the 80s.



Our take: Vinyl re-release for this DC project’s 2017 cassette. I'm pretty sure the same person who plays every instrument on this record also made the recent Hologram 7” on Hysteria / La Vida Es Un Mus, so it’s funny that it comes out a couple of months after the Hologram record. I also wonder why the project’s name changed, because the two records sound very similar. Certainly if you love one of them, you’ll at least really like the other. Both sound rooted in Koro’s manic, hyper-fast hardcore, but also inject elements of noise and power electronics. Here that’s restricted to the first track’s intro, but it’s quite a way to start a record. It’s kind of like crawling your way up the first big hill of a roller coaster, and when you crest the hill everything is a chaotic blur of unexpected twists and loops. As with Koro, it’s difficult to make sense of it at first, but with repeated listens you understand how intricate and nimble the music has to be in order to sustain that energy level. Some people will prefer Hologram’s burlier sound while others will like the rawness of Closet Christ, but in my book both are 100% essential.
