THE BEYOND plays a mix of black metal, crust and punk and if you don’t have a sense of humor don’t get this because you will need to not be PC at all for this release.
Lots of lyrics made to offend are all over this, just check out some titles, “Roto-Cunt”, “Goat Sodomizer”, and they cover GG Allin’s “Cunt Sucking Cannibal”. This should give you an idea of where they are coming from, the crazed gutter apparently, but luckily for me, this album made me laugh out loud and I’ve played it more than a few times. The band plays hard and fast and goes from playing punk to black metal songs, and even mixing the genres up on the same song all with skill. The production has the feel of being there in the studio with them, not all prettied up, but a bit gritty and rough while still allowing for all the instruments to be heard clearly. The band has plenty of blazing guitar, heavy thumping bass, pummeling drums, and vocals that go from screaming, to rough edged singing, and they even have some gang vocals on my favorite track “Necro Overload” which is some fast punk rock and as catchy as a sexually transmitted disease.
As I said before, this isn’t an album for everyone, but if you want something a bit different and damn good, but offensive, pick this one up.
