"Obnoxious Gas" (Self-released; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Long Island crustcore crew Obnoxious Gas unleash a relentless 10-track assault on your brain with their neck-snapping self-titled affair.

Rapid-fire rhythms, punk rock riffs on warped speed and frantic vocal yelps are the specialty of this quartet, keeping the musical output vicious while keeping their bitterness intertwined with the right amount of whimsy on cuts like "Fight Your Parents" and the death-and-roll stomp "Raped in Your Grave."

If you dig Eyehategod, Entombed, SOD, Napalm Death, A.C., or anything else abrasively loud and genuinely unapologetic, the raw offering from these raucous bunch of dudes will have you grinding the night away.

Rating Guide:

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.
