Roskopp - Roskopp


Sharing a member of fellow Aussies The Day Everything Became Nothing, Roskopp finds the middle ground between the crusty grinding of a band like Assel and the midpaced groovin' and gurglin' of your typical goregrind act. But, Roskopp's endless energy is what makes this 7", a nonstop barrage of buzzing guitars, pitch-shifted vocals, blasting drums, and seriously downtuned bass. It just never lets up and never lets you catch your breath. And, in a genre that has been content to fill up on filler, it's nice to finally get an album that's all killer. There's a real sense that they're flying by the seat of their pants, with just enough skills to barely pull this material off, and that makes Roskopp such an exciting and bracing listen. Plus, it contains a cover of fellow crust meets grind blasters, Phobia. How can you go wrong with that?

Pick this one up from Crucificados Pelo Sistema Records if you dig it and help keep this underground band going.

You're right. This album deserves to be bought. A lot of grindcore these days sounds like old copies of already being done. These guys though kick the ass of the current grindcore genre bigtime.
