Ripping fast thrashcore a la Heresy from Finland. 300 copies on black vinyl. Two-sided foldover covers + insert with translated english lyrics and poster.
Our take: Debut vinyl from this ripping fast band out of Finland. The label’s description mentions Heresy as a point of comparison and I can see that, but there are a few keys differences: 1. this 7” has a more powerful recording than Heresy ever got; 2. Raamattu doesn’t have Heresy’s occasional straight edge-type breakdowns; and 3. Raamattu is so much meaner than Heresy. Their tempos, however, roam in that space between Mob 47’s ripping fast d-beat and the hyper-drive of Siege or early Napalm Death, but infused with the tightness, anger, and attitude of top-shelf Finnish hardcore. With ten lightning-speed rippers, this one also tips the value-for-money scales. Limited to 300 copies and a Finnish import, so snooze and lose.
