Short Sharp Shock is what the acronym of SSS spells out, and a more fitting name couldn't be true for this British quartet, as they bludgeon your ears with a crucial slab of crossover metal. On the crew's 17-track blink and you'll miss it masterpiece, a flurry of guitars, drums, and hardcore howls duke it out in a bare knuckle brawl for it all on tracks such as the title cut, "The Beast", and "The Answer is Never". Relentless and bursting with an off the chart abrasiveness, if you're yearning for the days of throwback thrash when unadulterated aggression reigned supreme, this is a disc you must obtain.
