Veteran Easterners emerge from their growlery 26 years later, mean and gutteral and bloody as ever. A cornucopia of harsh tones, well fermented and then unleashed at light speed with only an intuitive nod to the strictures of time. Vicious and nearly unsuitable for headphone listening: the threatening snare stings like a drill bit to the left temple. Day jobs and midlife crises mean we might not see another LP until about 2016, but keep hope alive.
