Recently bands have been stripping down to a more basic sound or incorporating vintage equipment in order to create something that is closer to the heart of rock and roll instead of pro tools created, super clean, artificial sounds. It seems that this attempt at a more raw sound is what Get Fucked was going for on their new CD. I was hoping that like their label mates, Hot Cross and Books Lie, Get Fucked would be able to make hardcore more barebones and innovative, but things didn't work out that way.

Get Fucked strips down their sound by cutting out the technicality in their music and the melody in their vocals which merely results is a massive noise. The guitars are so heavy and thick that they often drown out the drums and almost all the guitar parts simply consist of playing chords as fast as possible. The guitars aren't the only thing that helps create Get Fucked's wall of sound, there are also the vocals which are mixed extremely low and are so heavily distorted that it becomes difficult to distinguish them from the rest of the noise the band is making.

Get Fucked get points for their intensity and sheer relentless energy that is present through out this release. That relentlessness however leads to redundancy. There are no breakdowns or even leads in the songs and they leave you waiting for a change that quite often doesn't come.

Get Fucked may be derivative, repetitive, and lack a sense of originality, but it seems like that is what they were intending to do. So if you want hardcore that is fast, heavy, abrasive, and straight to the point then this release is for you, but if you are looking for something a little more innovative you'll need to turn somewhere else.

Dear Scott Heisel,
move on with your life. to me it seems you eagerly look for opportunities to jump in and defend yourself when no one cares. pathetic. you should worry about your business and other people will worry about theirs. you really dont know when to drop it. you are struggling to continue a pointless arguement that doesnt involve the people viewing it. do it somewhere else cause no one wants to read it on any forums. grow up and get out. i personally dont like your site only signed up to post this. i will not return again or ever recommend it to someone. if your posts are to recruit people to your site im afraid its doing the exact opposite. just letting you know its getting old.

"wow. this sounds like the worst cd to ever be released. i hope i never have to listen to it."

And according to reviewers in England in the 70's, the Clash sounded like AC/DC.

Point: Reviewers often don't know shit.

Though Get Fucked are far from the greatness of the Clash...

great band great cd

i know a lot of people who don't understand what's so great about this band.

but then again, they're the same people who think that hardcore started in 1999, or people who got into it because slipknot just wasn't heavy enough for them anymore.

these people need to fuck off.

this band is amazing.
