I was incredibly misguided: unforgivably wrong.
Rudiments of Mutilation could, without a doubt, be the most bone-snappingly heavy, shamelessly coherent hardcore release of the year. Ten songs at 24 minutes is no impossible endeavor--go to your local venue tonight, and you'll find a hardcore band averaging 2.4 minute tracks--no biggie. However the lack of filler in the album is breathtaking. Find me a band that is self- or media-prescribed as darker hardcore without any fucking filler and I'll show you a liar.
Short, sweet, and to the point: Full of Hell is brilliant, and they deserve the hype. Their music crushes and rages through agonizingly slow bass and lightning-fast snare hits--all with the precision and passion of a serial killer. A gorgeous, terrifying album. Touche, A389.
