Paranoid: Destroy Future Less System 7"
Debut 7" from this new Swedish band featuring members of Warvictims, Electric Funeral, Desperat, and a slew of other bands I'm sure. Of course the foundation is in Discharge-inspired hardcore / crust, but this is one of those releases that really sticks out. It has a totally off-the-charts energy level, some pretty searing lead guitar, and just a really cool overall vibe. Like I say often with this kind of fairly straightforward hardcore release, it either rages or it doesn't and this definitely does. Sick packaging, too, including a two-color sleeve and another two-color, LP-style inner sleeve.
