GASMASK TERROR "17101961" 7"
Gasmask Terror are a d-beat band that crafts their riffs and songs more finely than their distortion pedals. Over time, they've come to master the Totalitar/No Security-idea of playing d-beat. This record, along with the Black Sun/Fake Gold LP and Like Daggers EP before it, is proof enough of that. In a world of hyped "noise not music" sloganeering (of which I am proudly a part of), it's refreshing to hear a band that doesn't include any members of Totalitar tackle this style.
