Nuclear Sex Addict - Seminäål Fuckkwït (2011)
This is, to my knowledge, the Australian group's only release before breaking up, although members of the band preform in acts like Pisschrist. And it's a damn shame, considering this noisy, raucous and sloppy EP is one of the best punk releases from Australia. Anyway, they play extremely noisy and harsh hardcore in one of my personal favorite styles, raw punk. The production is far from crystal clear, but it does add to the charm of the record: the screamed vocals, incomprehensibly distorted guitar riffs, buzzsaw bass melodies and trashcan drums come together in an assualt of sound that just hits you in the chest like a chainsaw, as the cover fittingly depicts. If you're a fan of bands like Disclose, Krömosom or Nerveskade, you'll probably like Nuclear Sex Addict's wall of sound approach as well.
A house divided (by a chainsaw) against itself cannot stand
