Avskum Live at Blitz cassette

Fast-paced basic thrash, Swedish style. Ten songs come forth with a good, steady beat and loud guitars. The vocals are harsh, but hard and heavy at the same time. Overall, the production is pretty good for a live recording and gives a healthy taste of what this intense band is all about.

Avskum Crucified by the System EP

Another boiling speed-merchant band in the tradition of ANTI-CIMEX, right down to the guitar solos. Maniac snarls overbite into brutal distortion and missiling quickness, which belts this hammering havoc into a forceful bombardment of chaotic punches. Great, but not unique—if you ordered this and ANTI-CIMEX, and the records got mixed up, you’d never know.
