Punk and Grindcore from PA!
Hailing from US, Police State presents this second release of pure grind punkish attack!
The album has some parts of sludge metal (well, it seems to be the tendency nowadays), but in the bulk it is honest and good ol’ metal punk.
However they are more than a crossover band. By the way I think crossover will never fit their sound: it is a fair mixture of Discharge and Extreme Noise Terror, going to and fro in the punk area to metal area…
Sometimes as in the song Pure Filth they sound like Napalm Death.
But as they accidentally have a British accent, sometimes they just seem like Misery Index of sorts, but, ironically, never going into the “American” way of Brutal Death Metal.
The song Propaganda is like Antigama with the pureness of Agathocles, very fast and extremely unpolished.
This is an honest release, and the noise is pleasant to hear and for those who are never tired of grindcore, this one is for you.
Mind Collapse is out now on Grimoire Records.
