Kruds / Rampant Decay split 7" Review
Released March 2012
Kruds (San Antonio Texas) version of teeth clenching powerviolence hits on the important points of the genre - over the top vocals, grinding slow interludes, heavy distorted guitars, ridiculous fast segments and killer samples. The Mike Tyson clips are fantastic. Don't know how I never heard those before! Fans of the genre will enjoy!
Rampant Decay (Providence Rhode Island) list Classy Freddie Blassie as their manager. That should give you a starting reference. Follow that up with a Japanese 80s hardcore influence filtered through a thrash attack (with dirty production) and you have Rampant Decay. A crazy enjoyable record (comes with a download code and is available in purple or black vinyl versions).
