Mob Rules: The Donor 12"
On their debut full-length, the UK's Mob Rules have concocted one of the most ambitious and cohesive re-articulations of power violence in recent memory. While they don't abandon the genre's essential traits--blistering fast parts, trippy sludge breakdowns, and harsh, hateful vocals--they render them exponentially more powerful by adding some new spices to the stew, namely an expansive sense of composition that recalls King Crimson at their heaviest moments. From a 37-second ripper to a 7+-minute epic jam that wastes anything on The Process of Weeding Out, this LP has it all. Includes free mp3 download and obi strip.
