Agoraphobic Nosebleed Bestial Machinery: Discography Vol. 1

This two-disc collection of impossibly fast, unadulterated digital grind, totals 136 tracks, spans the group’s entire career previous to their signing with Relapse. If you’re still reading, you’re more than likely planning to purchase this release, already have, or are investigating something so comically over-the-top out of mere curiosity. So what the hell are you waiting for? Agoraphobic Nosebleed provide short, manic bursts of aggression that blend effortlessly into each other, with the occasional battering groove to keep things in perspective, all propelled by a seemingly demonic drum machine guaranteed to produce at least some degree of motion sickness in even the most gnarly, jaded listener. For fans of the group, this is essential listening — it collects every single split, seven-inch, compilation appearance and the like from the group’s early years, almost all of which is either long out of print or difficult to find. The packaging is superb. The music contained within is disgusting. No further explanation is necessary. (Relapse)
