Violent Headache
Bombs of Crust/False Terminal (Six Weeks)

By: Jeb Branin

VIOLENT HEADACHE should have called this album "CLUSTER Bombs of Crust" because cluster bombs throw their destructive material all over the place and so does this album. There is no way to pin down the 71 tracks on this album by fitting them with a neat little genre tag. Much of the time it is obviously a crust (DISRUPT meets MORAL SUCKLING) album with dual vocals; a screeching female one and a low growling male one. Other times it seems to be pure thrash going no holds barred. Then just when you think you've got them pegged they pull out an almost grindcore sound. Then some blur core is added in for good measure. Hell there are even bits of death metal here! Not to mention the tune with horns and the acoustic ditty. The only constant is that each tune is intense and rough delivered with a cutthroat abandon. Some of the diversity, but by no means all of it, is due to the fact this CD is actually a collection of two different recordings. Tracks 1-19 have the dual vocals and are much more crusty. Tracks 20-71 have just male vocals and are far more grind/noise/blur sounding. I don't care which way you lean, if you like extreme music there is going to be something right up your alley on this CD.
