ALTERED STATES OF AMERICA
Agoraphobic Nosebleed is the true purveyors of pushing the envelope, and now this radical grind- death metal outfit has outdone itself. The latest release by this Massachusetts quartet contains 99 tracks in less than 20 minutes! How's that for pacing? Still utilizing a drum machine that sounds like a incessant gun turret, and armed with some of the heaviest (albeit them short) riffs heard anywhere, ANb once again prove why these explorers of all that is obscene, both musically and lyrically, have remained at the top of the heap. Oh yeah, the accompanied artwork is disturbingly stellar, and the CD that ALTERED STATES OF AMERICA is packaged with is merely 3 inches in circumference. Never at a loss for words or creativity, Agoraphobic Nosebleed should continue to offend and blow your mind at the same time for as long as it wants to.
