Ill-Tolerance – Demo I & Prospects of Terror


Time for a double feature of raw, blackened grindcore, straight out from Florida! I’m not usually that into grind or punk, but these intrigued me enough that they fell into my basket while shopping for a bundle of cassettes from Obscure Vanity label.

NOISE is as old as millions of years of volcanic eruption and mountain erosion. The modern industry of metal and machines added more to this mix. All we do is use everything at our disposal to record the true power that had been filling the airwaves since the beginning of time.”
Joseph Roemer
