SIDE A.) SHITNOISE BASTARDS:

I.) SON OF CORRUPTOR / II.) CHIEF INSPECTOR SATAN /
III.) CAREFUL WITH THAT MIC / IV.) VIEWS OF VIOLENCE:
So on the A side we have SHITNOISE BASTARDS who play Shit Noise...
Cause they are bastards...No but seriously what they do is closer 
to extremely raw Grindcore. Harsh and relentless stuff that goes
for the throat and takes a bite out of it with jagged teeth. Rapid
fire machine gun drumming and obscured guitars under heavy amounts
of lo-fi static combine and blast off as a dual high/low vocal attack 
comes from  within the monstrous mass. It sounds like it may be male
and female vocals but it's honestly hard to tell. Mid-paced doom breaks
give us time to recollect our wits and then we are pummeled once again
by the reckless, Merciless onslaught that is SHITNOISE BASTARDS. Fans
of UNHOLY GRAVE, SPOONFUL OF VICODIN and raw, Lo-fi aggressive music 
in general should find something they like here. The guitars are a 
muddy mess for the most part but the riffs are still somewhat 
distinguishable. There is a very improvised/jam session quality
to this. Basically a garage band sound but much more relentless
than most bands you'll hear rehearsing while walking down the
street. Blistering and chaotic stuff that I am pretty sure is 
all recorded live and in one take. The drummer stays locked
in and delivers high octane ferocity throughout most of the
SNB side of the split. A few tracks take more of an instrumental
approach with sparse vocals that seem to be there for emphasis 
more than anything. The vocals are much more buried on some tracks
while on others they are more upfront and in your face. At times it
gets a bit sloppy but not enough to keep you from enjoying the chaos.
Basically, If you are new to SNB this is as good a place as any to
start. These dudes have an assload of splits out with various Punk,
Grind and Noise artists and you always know what you are getting with
them. If you are into the rawer spetrums of Noise, Grind, Crust or Power 
Violence then this may appeal to you. Loud samples of that "double rainbow"
video that was circulating on the internet for a while are used as an outro,
Bringing side A to an awkward end.

SIDE B.) REDSK:

V.) IDIOT DIPSHIT / VI.) TOO STUPID TO NOTICE /
VII.) SWEET SWEET SCHADENFREUDE / VIII.) SAY IT AGAIN:
On the REDSK side we have another harsh assault that compliments the A
side and keeps things rolling in a similar sonic direction. Here this
comes via a Harsh Noise holocaust. Shrill high end static and eerie
feedback are heard along with cut-up style insanity. Sunday morning
TV sermon samples are mixed in with random pre-recorded/sampled blast
beats that sound like they were recorded by various people on various
drum kits. Static bursts batter us into the ground as warped oscillating
signals rise, fall, swirl and vanish. Deep and distorted bass layers,
junk noise, object abuse, and countless other sounds come at you one
after the next and ransack all in their path. Feedback turns into low
rumbling motors. What sounds like every car alarm on the block going
off in unison is heard at times. Intense electronic noise and broken
drones are heard in between strange segments of uncomfortable lo-fi
ambiance. Noise Grind passages are placed in the midst of all of this
along with spoken samples covering various obscure, cryptic and weird
topics. The whole B side is pretty much a complete mindfuck. About as
raw as it gets for this kind of music. Long stretches of white noise
and live wire, high voltage Harsh Noise are thrown over spastic drumming
in a ferocious mix of aural violence. It's one barrage after the next.
Certain themes are present from time to time giving this chaotic display
a strange undertone of cohesiveness. Ghetto samples bring oldschool Hip-
Hop attitude at the end making this even stranger. As a whole it's a great
match for what SNB did on the flip side.

NO FRILLS HARSH MUSIC FOR ANTI-SOCIAL ASSHOLES, NOISE/GRIND FREAKS AND
ANYONE ELSE THAT WOULD RATHER BE OBLITERATED THAN ENTERTAINED:

7/10
