CHOOSE YOUR POISON: Thrashed To Ribbons: 7″

Thrashed To Ribbons cover art

Five song EP from this Wisconsin skate / thrash band that combines hyper energy and dual crazed vocals.

Great set of songs played with anger and enthusiasm and a sense of urgency. Screamed vocals fronting a band that gets down to business and that business is ass kicking. Great lyrics round off this great single.

The quality from these guys is always top-notch and will get you off of your ass and breaking shit with your brand new skate deck. “Drink, skate, thrash, burn”!


Some ripping hardcore / skate punk from Wisconsin that flies by in under ten minutes and makes you want more.

A four song CD that just makes you wanting more from them as the songs blast past you at a hyper fast blur. Screamed, crazed dual vocals, slow / fast parts perfect for slamming, insane playing and riffs galore on this all too short CD.

You can’t go wrong with anything from this band, so go and grab a copy of this and get some great punk rock.

CHOOSE YOUR POISON / NU, POGODI!: Fuck My Womb I’m Calling In Dead Split: 7″

Five song split single from CHOOSE YOUR POISON from Appleton, WI and NU, POGODI! from Leeds, UK. Both bands giving their everything on these five songs and destroying whatever gets in their way.

Kicking things off is CYP with “Calling in Dead / Damage Is Done” which is one devastating track that reminded me of DAYGLO ABORTIONS a bit with the crazed playing and shouted lyrics, and “Enter The Coma” is the last of their tracks and completes the skate punk / thrash / metal mix that made me sad that hardly anyone plays this style anymore and nowhere as good as they do. The next three songs from NU, POGODI! come at you like a wailing banshee fronting a whirlwind. Lots of screaming, machine gun drumming, riffs aplenty and deep bass all add up to a thrash / crust / punk fest that will leave you wanting more.

Two bands that totally killed it on this release and blew me away with the anger and energy that they both possess. This is the kind of single that you put on and a pit breaks out and sweeps you in and knocks you on your ass. Great stuff!
