XII.) 40% OFF YOUR FUCKING SOUL!! (UNPLUGGED RADIO HIT VERSION):
INFLICTION RATE play a fast, furious and ultra raw combination of Hardcore
Punk with elements of Power Violence, Grindcore, and Harsh/Experimental
Noise. Punkthrone takes us on a joyride through twelve tracks of reckless
thrashing with a Punk Rock party attitude. Good fucking times listening
to this one. "That Moment" starts things off with drum fills and feedback
that lead into a doomy lo-fi dirge and then we blast off into a grimey 
Power Violence style jam. Raw and filthy as fuck. The guitars are thick
and overly distorted. Almost to the point of giving the tape a "Blown 
Out" sound. The bass is deep and crusty and sounds like just attempting
to play it means you'd be in for a difficult trek through muck and sewage.
Drums are loud and energetic as fuck. These dudes obviously love what they
do...Even if that means they love unleashing blaring hymns of opinionated
disgust for all they see. Vocals are somewhere between Crust Punk and Grind-
core style screams. Raspy and rancid. You can hear the band interacting
in between songs like a bunch of fucking goofballs which really brings
their energy into the room. "Life Is Shit" is a dark and violent track
with ultra fast blast beats and a lot of aggression. Short and furious.
The next track follows in it's footsteps and follows the same basic
formula. Vocals range from blackened croaks to bitter grunts and
fill the air like toxic smog from an industrial chimney. Things
pretty much kick into gear and stay there until "Just Another
$lave" where we start off with a plodding drum intro. This takes
us into a pretty badass Sludge style jam session. Slow and fucking
heavy. Distorted bass and excellent percussive patterns take us into
what may be the fastest and most punishing track yet. Totally relentless
and aggressive Grindcore/Hardcore that makes you want to break everything
in your house (Or whoever's house...Fuck em) And rip your face off and throw 
it down the stairs or some shit. We go into an almost Black Metal style 
interlude that eventually drops us right back into the pit as fast tempos
and scornful vocals kick our asses a little more. Later on there is this
weird ass clean guitar part that is as interesting as it is unexpected.
Sorta like really sloppy and chaotic Latin style shit? I don't fucking
know what to call it but it's cool as shit. Drum, Bass and cowbells or
china cymbals (Not sure which) make a neat little interlude and then
once again we are pulverized once INFLICTION RATE goes back into their
usual blistering madness. "Fuck Your Individuality" or at least I think 
that's what song we are on at this point??? starts off with clattering,
chaotic percussion's and bursts out and kicks more ass. Clean guitars
are utilized once again but this time they take a total Black Metal
approach which is especially apparent in the vocals. Throaty, Raspier
and about as Kvlt/Grim or whatever as you can get. At this point I'm
not even 100% sure what song we are on anymore so I am just gonna tell
you what we've got here. Monotron noise fuckery and long stretched
Hardcore/Power Violence style vocals that sound painful and agonized.
Like old MAN IS THE BASTARD or COLUMN OF HEAVEN if their only noise
gadgets were a monotron delay and possibly one of the other models.
Comedic samples come out of nowhere featuring a pissed off cop arguing 
with some dude at a counter of some fancy ass establishment. The snarky
utterance of "Fuck you officer" is definitely amusing. Rhythmic noise
loops fade into the next track which features some crazy ass transitions,
Clean Latin style guitars, Death growls and hateful screams, Vulgar and
unapologetic lyrics and stellar drumming. The following track is an utter
cacophony. Harsh Noise, buried drumming, muffled/buried vocals and did I
say Harsh Noise? After a while the drums and vocals become a little more
audible in the mix and things end with another Power Violence Noise Freak-
out. Silence and then a random outburst of drums and shit that I am not
sure is even supposed to be on the tape and then that's all folks.
