Warvictims Domedagen

Warvictims Domedagen
It doesn't seem possible that D-beat could become faster, more aggressive or overwhelming. However, with Domedagen, Sweden's Warvictims have accomplished just that. While still rooted in the Discharge-meets-Anti Cimex rancid onslaught this primordial genre pulls its name from, the album progresses ― nay, stampedes ― ever closer to the overbearing hyperactivity and dirge of old school grindcore combating doom. Merciless, the album's 14 tracks batter with grinding bellows offset by screeching attacks and a general feeling of rabid animals freed from bedraggled cages after years of borderline starvation. Offsetting the bombast, some shit-hot, blues-based solos make for a nice contrast against the leathery rhythms while actually intensifying the general sense of overload and chaos. With Warvictims together for only four years, Domedagen is incredibly advanced, shocking and crazed; it's better than albums by bands together twice as long. (Crimes Against Humanity)
