Krakwurx, Try so hard

A 3 track tape which comes in a novel bendy polythene case? Promising already. A couple of listens to said tape reveals that while the contents of the case are not ground-breaking, there's enough here to make it worthy of your attention. It's an aggressive trashy-industrial speed-fest with the usual distorted vocals, driving guitar and pummelling drums. No track hangs around long enough to grate and there's no slack. Pick of the three tracks is Cruel world which literally gallops along on a couple of riffs most bands this hard would give their best crack pipe to have written.

As I say, not shockingly original, but if you're into the hard stuff, then you should get hold of a copy right away. This is far, far better than average.
