Abscess - Population Reduction - Split EP

AbscessSpace
Pop-ReduxSpace
Release: 2009
Type: CD
Label: Tank Crimes

This little ditty does everything I expect from a split EP: two bands with distinctly different styles; both bands get around 13 minutes; and there is at least one cover song.

Veterans Abscess get the ball rolling with eight songs that sound like they were made in the 1980's. Track one, "The World Insane" opens with a riff straight off of "Praise of Death" by Slayer. From here they play a handful of thrash songs, a punk number and even give us a breakdown in the middle of "Bourbon, Blood and Butchery" that sounds just like Sabbath, right down to the guitar solo. Only one song has blastbeats. They start out smooth and powerful but after 20 second begin devolving into something sloppy enough to make Mick Harris sound like a genius. But let's be honest, these guys are elder statesmen; what do we expect?

All of these songs are like a trip down memory lane, courtesy of accomplished musicians who are passionate about what they play, but more importantly, know how to write and play it. What we have in the end are authentic tunes; which is refreshing in a time with pseudo-retro thrash acts popping up right and left.

Up next on the track list are seven new songs from the self-professed "hash smoking grind freaks." There is no use asking for a continuation of "Each Birth a New Disaster" because that was two years ago. But we are completely justified hoping for rhythm-driven thrash with humorous lyrics. And with titles like "Babies are Assholes" and "Beer Fest, Bear Death" it's safe to assume they lived up to their end of the bargain. But on closer inspection, it's "In with the Old, Out with the Cold" that truly fits the bill. This song begs the question: are our grandparents "clean burning fossil fuel"?

Does this EP replace anything by either band? Of course not. You have to search pretty deep to find EPs that take precedence of full lengths (Mentally Murdered comes to mind). But as a fan of either band, these are essential tunes to keep your interest up while awaiting the next album. You can check it out here. You can pick this up cheap from Tank Crimes but it's PayPal only. The other option is to pay 2$ more and get it here. Either way you get a Population Reduction sticker (white lettering on a black background) a basic lyric sheet and some band member photos.

@ Anon: Religious dissertations are only accepted if they coincide with the review in question.

Thank you for your comprehension.

Flesh Monolith said...

beat me to the deletion. What an odd and random post that was. Good review nonetheless dude, never had much interest in Abscess though, this might spark it though.

206-grind said...

Yeah man. What makes things worse is I read the whole thing thinking a point was coming. Should have known better...

Abscess: Great throwback tunes that sound oddly familiar. Something to put on at a party just to confuse the old-guard.

Andrew Childers said...

aw fuck. when did this finally come out? i've been looking around for it all summer. i thought it had been canceled because nobody was stocking it. awesome post.

206-grind said...

Came out in March, but it took me until August to find someone selling it without the PayPal option. No a fan of PP. Never will be.

206-grind said...

Sure are plenty of downloads for this one. I hope there are plenty of purchases as well. Wink-Wink, Nudge-Nudge. Say. No. More.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

[color=#99aadd]Howdy

With the continuing rise in popularity of facebook poker chips as a virtual currency in facebook texas holdem poker a lot of phishers have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned facebook poker chips. All over the internet forums are littered with posts by innocent people who have had their chips stolen. Nothing is as sorry state as logging to Facebook or MySpace to play a few games of poker only to find that someone has already been in your account and your poker chips are gone.[/color]

[url=http://www.chipshut.com][img]http://www.chipshut.com/img/facebook-poker-chips-hut.jpg[/img][/url]

[color=#99aadd]Follow these tips to keep your facebook poker chips safe:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a sexy girl in poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

Be careful about what you download: Regular online gamers are looking for cheats or hacks for the games they play in order to give them an advantage over their opponents. Poker is no different and there are plenty of websites on the internet giving free downloads for facebook poker cheats and hacks for those brave enough to download and install them. But many of these so called facebook poker cheats have viruses or trojan programs. The moment you install any of these your computer is at the risk of attacks by the creator of the program. He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Theives send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the phisher who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by phisher, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behin it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips.
