The group mixes members of Ralph and Manic with singer Michael "Ruby" Rubenstein and guitarist Jesse Lipper from the now defunct Bukkake Boys. Their six song demo cassette is packed with the lightning fast blasts of hardcore you'd expect from all of those groups. While it's hard to say how different this band is from its member's other projects based on demos, these drum-driven songs owe more to modern hardcore, and even grindcore, influences than the Bukkake Boy's sound, which, at times, was more reminiscent of Poison Idea at its heaviest.
The brightest spot on a tape without a dull moment is the comparably long and complex "Violent Action," which dares to clock in at 2:47 and seems to have as many different parts as most power violence songs.
It's so good from start to finish that its "Play Loud" admonition is worth heeding.
