Phobia - Cruel

Listening to pretty much any Willowtip records release is like getting hit in the face with a baseball bat, in a good way. And this is no exception. This crust-grind band tears their way through their songs with such a veangance that it might make your ears bleed. Their skill and orchestration is obvious, they never miss a beat, and their songs while all pretty fast have a different feel.

Unrelenting is the word that mainly comes to mind. As with most albums by grind bands, their songs all clock in at under two minutes, save one or two. I mean, with the intensity of the music, I think it would be hard to maintain that level of crazy for longer than a minute without needing a break.

My favorite track is "Get The Fuck Out!", A minute long poke in the eye. If you enjoy grind/crust or maybe even just death metal or abrasive music, it doesn't get any more damn abrasive than this.
