COBRA NOIR - Barricades LP (used)
Crushing dark hardcore punk from Montréal with members of Ire, The Black Hand and Mi Amore.

Channelling these influences through the confrontational grit and fortitude of Discharge, the result is an endless barrage of bowel-rumbling chords pushed through overdriven amplification, a vocal style reminiscent of a sinners froth-laden wailing as Satan plucks out his pubic hairs one by one and drums that border on incomprehensible while still providing the thrust necessary to make this behemoth blow the stainless steel out of your lobes.
