I just wanted to say up front that Assholeparade's Welcome Fucking Home seven-inch contains seven songs. When listening to it, I picked out maybe three. Then I remembered that old story about how filmmakers had to slow down Bruce Lee's fight scenes so audiences could see his punches and switched my record player from the 45 rpm setting to 33 1/3. Oh hey, look. "Soldiers IV" really is a separate song from "Lesson One."

The A side is just one continuous butt-whooping. The band rips through one rapid-fire hardcore jam after another. The P side (see what they did there?) slows down for a bit with "Much Preesh"--the guitars are slower, more ominous--before ratcheting back up with the seconds-long "Freedom Fighters." The whole thing is pretty blistering, covering topics, if you can pick out the lyrics, about violence and poverty. Good times.

This reminds me of the reviews in Kerrang when they used to say that punk was bullshit or a joke, before they realised there's money there.

Misanthropee (July 4, 2010)

Short, yes. The other two things, not so much.

upon opening this review i had flashes of Punknews circa 2001. nice to see a short, to the point and informative review again.

I agree with misanthropee. If you aren't into thrashcore, it would just sound like a big mess of fast. I love this ep.

Misanthropee (July 2, 2010)

I won't necessarily disagree with the score, but I'm thinking you might give the same to pretty much any thrashcore record. Brevity is part of the style. You're supposed to be reviewing within the context of the idiom.
