Modern Bullshit

Earlier this year I posted about the Mob Rules/Crowd Control split 7". The initial reason that I bought that record was because I was interested to hear more of Mob Rules. Subsequently I grabbed that bands "Donor' 7" and kind of took more interest in them at the same time. Today I received their new LP too which I'll post about at some point this week. Anyway, the point of this post is to talk about Crowd Control. In the last fortnight I've been spinning their half of the split incessantly and I've come to realise that it's on par, if not better than the Mob Rules stuff. Last night I learnt that CC have a new 7" out (which I'll have in a few weeks I hope), and with the help of Google and the following of some links I also found this online stream of what I assume will be their new LP that's due out in 2011.
This is next level shit. This is what the "Cave" LP would sound like if it were on a cocktail of steroids, horse tranquilizers, and acid. This in my opinion is the epitome of DIRGE. Reverbed to hell vocals, scrappy snare sound and a bass tone that sounds like it's covered in a thick film of scum and shit. I dare you to listen to this.
