Society's Parasites 1753

Society's Parasites 1753
One of street/gutter punk's greatest new bands, Society's Parasites haven't yet gained the attention or reverence they deserve. Rabid, volatile and disgustingly fast, this L.A. quartet redefine what it means to be aggressive. Still, despite their impeccable abilities, they're not exactly the most expedient writers. Sophomore album 1753 comes a full three years after their eponymous debut ruptured the punk rock scene. But, within an instant, the genuine spirit, phenomenal virility and charged attack of these 23 songs make the wait all worthwhile. Raging away at an average of less than one-minute per track, 1753 doesn't just make its point and wander off, it grabs us by the scruff, smashes us into a brick wall and delivers a final kick to the groin before demolishing everything in sight. Intensifying not only their assault but also the state of the entire genre, 1753 takes the work of the Casualties, Discharge and Amebix and amps it up tenfold, creating a delightfully berserk Latino blitzkrieg.
