Hardened second release by London's Subdued throttles gasps of brickwall torture in and amongst the poison flora of spoken word which will legitimately make a mother cry. Nods to the impassable corners of Celtic Frost and the broken necks of enthusiastic Amebix fans, all with a specific kind of listless stare into the white void of repetitive oblivion. Shaking you in and out of misery, Subdued are back.
The record comes in a wraparound sleeve with collaborative art between drummer Nicky Rat and singer Jack Sabbath.
I was living in Atlanta in 2017 when I discovered this band. I thought I was the only trans chick who was into hardcore (not literally but you know what I mean) and then I heard that they broke up and now I'm sad. piggypop
