Vicious Cycle of Life: 7”
This brutal and fast powerviolence record is on the more metal end of that subgenre. Once it speeds up and there’s less time for camp metal guitar lines, it becomes more palatable for my punk snob ears. They’re from Finland, with two of the three tracks featuring English lyrics. The third is in Finnish. Some powerviolence is oddly accessible, but this is less so, with the focus on showy speed musicianship. I like the throwback to a decade ago that seems to be happening on this record, but it still has me scratching my head at times because I think they’re going for a relatively broad audience, at least within hardcore’s circle. Vicious Cycle of Life is vicious indeed. –Art Ettinger (Räkälevyt, diyturku.net/rakalevyt)
