"Bearing and Distance" (Level Plane; 2008)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
California hardcore punk trio Ghostlimb pour a lifetime of aggressions into their 18-minute, 15-track disc "Bearing and Distance."
Featuring a flurry of short, sharp, and succinct strikes, this squad relentlessly rips out tracks like "Ruins" and "The Force That Gives Us Meaning," tearing through speakers with an imminent impact that requires immediate attention.
Keeping the pace at constantly manic while steamrolling over the listener with a cavalcade of speedy drums, nimble yet crushing riffs and passionate raspy vocals ("Ocean Floor," "Port of Call"), if you're looking for a well-balanced mesh of velocity and rage, Ghostlimb brings it.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
