Why: The final release from H-Town's greatest grindcore weirdos.
[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]
Insect Warfare - Single-sided LP - 625 Thrashcore
1. Unititled -- ****
Radness Average: 4.000
* A note about this release:
On its final album, Insect Warfare played a little prank on its fans, critics, and haters alike. Insect Warfare broke up instead of venturing into the world of professional death metal. The band's sound was changing into a more power electronics direction anyway. So, in order to stick it to the man one final time, the single-sided LP is a lone nine-minute-long blast of caustic noise. This record is a final middle finger delivered to those who expected this band to go through the motions for decades on end for little to no reward. I appreciate the sentiment but I gave this record a four instead of a five because of the lack of traditional grind. I get it, fight the power and all that, but don't forget who "brung ya" to the dance.
