LANDMINE MARATHON
WOUNDED
LEVEL PLANE

From the ominous and totally devastating opening riff of “25th Hour”, you can feel the Earth shake, and that’s most likely what Arizona’s Landmine Marathon intended. This quintet juxtapose early ‘90s extreme grind metal with traces of southwestern crust throughout this eight-track sojourn, occasionally turning up the Carcass meets Napalm Death meter on cuts like “Crisscross Thoughts” while displaying epic guitar licks that morph into a full-on musical assault on tracks like “FUBAR”. Direct and chaotic, chances are if you own any albums from the early day era of Earache Records, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this tumultuous 22-minute tour-de-force.
