Asschapel- Fire and Destruction CD $10.00 $3.00

Review from Damn... talk about an improvement. Their last disc wasn't bad, but this one is a million times more furious and energetic! The songs are all short as fuck (few hitting two minutes) and contain nonstop frantic drumming with pounding basslines, crushing heaviness, and insane vocal layering from all directions - screaming, growling, yelling, you name it. There's even a thrash metal sort of tinge happening in there! Overall this is much more metallic, but there's still a dark hardcore edge not only to the vocals but some of the discordant chord progressions and such. But god damn, the songwriting is so much better on this CD, I'm really blown away. They've just nailed this ferocious, driving tempo, with grinding drums, thrashing guitars, some wild leads, a few plodding chord progressions that gallop along at a nice pace, etc. The recording is sort of raw, but it's thick as fuck and there's absolutely no separation in the mix, everything is really warm and meshed right together with no gaps. I like it. You can make out what's going on, but they keep a certain dirtiness to it that really works. The bass tone plays a very important role too, which is fucking great. I'm not really sure why there's a 24-page booklet, since all they do is type lyrics out in a large font and give each song its own page amidst shitloads of live band photos that basically look the same, which seems like a waste of money to me, but the cover art does look slick. The lyrics are pretty damn over the top: "Fuck serenity, Fuck everlasting peace, Fuck eternity, Set the fire, Burn the world down, Rip its fucking heart out, The future that I see screams in dying harmony..." Good work. Absolutely check this out if you liked their last record. Don't be fooled by the band name, this shit is indeed all about destruction. (7/10)
