Obliterations are a band from Massachusetts that plays a very raw, aggressive and old school hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2014 album "Poison Everything" which will be released in October of 2014.
A very distorted guitar lead starts off the album along before going into more of a fast crust punk direction along with some d beats and aggressive screams and the band also brings in a lot of old school hardcore elements into their musical style along with some Motorhead influences that bring in a touch of metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and on some of the songs the band also brings in some guitar solos and leads that combine metal and punk together and on some of the later tracks the band starts bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Obliterations plays a very old school style of crust and hardcore punk that goes back to the 80's era of the genre along with a touch of the 90's style to create some very aggressive and true hardcore punk that stays away from the modern style, the production sounds very heavy and old school sounding while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Obliterations are a very great sounding old school crust/hardcore punk band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album> RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mind Ain't Right" "Poison Everything" "Open Casket" and "Crawl Inside". 8 out of 10.
