Red Red Red- Mind Destroyer LP
Red Red Red- Mind Destroyer LP. First of all this is by and far one of THEE best punk records I've heard in a long time. This is Ryan from the Piranhas new band and he's totally outdone himself this time. Bursting off the turntable at first with "Disconnected" it's a fury of white-hot guitar driven punk that barely stops to breath. Recorded over the course of a year and a half, you get a few different recording styles, some with a bigger drum sound than others, but all with amped-out guitar squeal and hoarse static-laden vox. Take the first Piranhas 7" and imagine if they worked backwards from there into a more primal punk-rock band. "Crash" and "Send Help" are great mid-temp favorites, but this thing reaches it's peak with the closing three-song salvo of "Head On", "Meltdown" and "Mind Destroyer", a trio of angry and chaotic explosions that are total physical and musical deconstructions. Awesome record.
