"Drunk in the gulag again!?! This time Kremlin emerge with not only a hangover but the proverbial lightning in a bottle - 10 tracks of insane hardcore punk captured on a four track and released for your listening pleasure on a 45rpm 12inch.
With a variety in song tempo, tone, structure and attention to detail Kremlin have made a real record rather than flog the dead horse of one riff and the same bag of tricks over and over to flex some musical muscle in an attempt to be "punishing" or "brutal" (oh brother!) or hammer home some point of reference. While they owe a debt to the past of classic hardcore punk for their sound this record is truly an addition to the punk cannon and their very own statement to the world. Kremlin re-envision the music of their influences using the old puzzle pieces to make a new picture - UK/European inspired punk riffing with the speed, precision, and sense of rhythm of classic American hardcore.
Kremlin's 4th release (and 2nd vinyl offering) steps back from the brink of insanity and the psychedelic frontiers of last years "Will You Feed Me" 7 inch with a more fleshed out, fully realized version of their sound that is somewhere between the no non-sense sound of their demos, the adventurous mayhem of their 7 inch, and the intensity of their live show.”
So I only have this as the sides of the records and not the individual tracks... but eh, its free! Enjoy!
