ALKERDEEL "de speenzalvinge" DLP
First album proper from the heaviest band in Belgium. Three tracks that maintain the same brutal mixture of pulsing low-end ass assault and fast, almost d-beat rhythms, all held together by totally entrancing, riffs, unrelentingly repetitive and totally driving. The difference this time is the production: gone is the necro sound of "Luizig" and in is a more fluid, tight production. The sound may be different but the intent is the same, and the three (long!) tracks here are Alkerdeel's most prophetic statement yet. The best band of their kind going right now, essential listening.
