'Well, here's all your Anti-Christmas dreams come true. New Zealand punk label Razored Raw has dropped two new split releases on cassette – just in time to ruin the holidays. Wellington, NZ powerviolence trio Stress Ghetto share space with Indonesian trio Get it Today on one tape, and with Japanese crew Leech on the other. Both cassettes are lo-fi and obnoxious. But that's no surprise.
Stress Ghetto's split with Jakarta-based trio Get it Today is filled with abrasive noise made by abrasive people – and it’s perfect for the twisted masochist that lurks inside us all. There's no drastic change of tempo or technique here; Stress Ghetto simply cram five ugly tracks into four uglier minutes. Rungas gutter noise reigns. And you can expect a battering quagmire of riffs, percussion, and churning bass – as per normal – and barking vocals too.
Get it Today don't ease the pressure in any way. The band hurl a mess of crude and mangling noise at you – with grindcore, hardcore, thrashcore, and powerviolence smashing into each other at top speed. Get it Today’s sound is lo-fi but hi-energy, and they manage to out-pace Stress Ghetto delivering their five songs in three whiplashing minutes.' - Craig Hayes, Six Noises.
