The waiting is over. Since Framtid "defeat of civilization" lp has been finally unleashed to the masses, we can skip the rest of 2013 and go straight forward to 2014. Why? Coz' we already got the album of the year. One of the most anticipated release of the last few years, as expected it doesn't disappoint at all. Solid, noisy, swedish fueled hardcore punk via japan. It took them 11 bloody years to release another full length but the waiting was worth it. I guess the secret of the high quality level of japanese bands is being patient and waiting. Instead of release every fart they write, they take their time and wait until they have something perfect before recording it. Gauze anyone? After all, Framtid has been around for 17 years and they've released only a couple of demos, one full ep, three splits and two full albums. Could you name a single band outta america or europe that has done the same thing? Neither I. I bet that 99% of US crusties that were around when Framtid started in 1996 are now working for a big multinational corporation.
Musically is an awesome riffs feast. Songs are a bit longer this time so Jacky provides a few solos here and there between the wall of noise he creates. Takayama and Inu are offering again the most solid rhythmic session a band can dream of. Maniko vocals sound like the agony of war victims he wants to recreate. This album is simply perfect. Am I the only one who see a tribute to old italian hardcore in the back cover? It looks like a mix of Wretched and Impact covers!!
