This album rocks like a solid gold bastard. This is how Hardcore should be. It’s dirty and brutal to the nth degree. Hellfish will have you bouncing off the walls with this corrosive sonic collage.
Hardcore Techno has it’s origins in Hardcore Rave and Gabba – that wonderful amphetamines-only Dutch creation. The sound has much more of a Rap influence here though. So much for the lesson. I’ve heard me fair share of Hardcore Techno. It’s banging and it’s fast – 180+ bpm up all night Gabba territory – but, well … it isn’t a patch on this. Hellfish sticks his fingers down Hardcore’s throat and makes it regurgitate itself. If anything deserves to be called hardcore it’s Meat Machine Broadcast System. In my opinion Hellfish is up there with Alec Empire – a much more meaningful comparison that whistle blowing Hardcore or cheesy Rotterdam Gabba. If you’ve already heard Hellfish, or heard some of the stuff out there on his label Deathchant Records you’ll know what I mean, and if you haven’t, then get this album and blow yer ears off.
