Two bands facing off on this album, RIVERS RUN DRY, a Hungarian political crust band and TYRANNICIDE, a Dutch anarcho-hardcore band. These two political bands playing back to back, killer music will make you think with their great lyrics, as well as rage along with the music.
Starting off with RIVERS RUN DRY’s four songs, we get manic vocals shrieked out mixed with clean vocals, songs going from slow dirges to fast, almost metal in sound with thick bass, pummeling drums and hyper fast guitar licks. On TYRANNICIDE’s side we get six songs that have growled vocals, some slower, heavy parts mixed with blindly fast hardcore, crunchy guitar playing, and the devastating combination of the drums and bass to keep the huge bottom end booming.
Two bands, one 12″ record and one successful paring with both groups complimenting the other’s style so well, you would think that this would have happened more often. A mighty fine release with both bands being equally aggressive and intriguing. Good stuff!
