X-Creta Patronizing the Heterodox LP

A very high energy release — this is metal-heavy hardcore without the excesses and with intelligence. Though riffs do get repetitious, the overall power is intense enough to hold your attention. Should be popular.

X-Creta 13 Recepten Voor Een Hersenbloeding cassette

Pretty decent but somewhat stilted thrash. I say stilted in that the drumming is so repressed in a chunky kind of way that the real power here doesn’t quite come across. Otherwise, it’s quite all right with excellent lyrics and some occasionally interesting changes.
