Debut release from Lublin’s OHYDA. Distorted dark hardcore which channels the spirit of the classic Polish hardcore punk of DEZERTER or TRAGIEDIA (who they cover on the B side), mixes it with modern Barcelona bands ala DESTINO FINAL and incorporates quasi industrial beats a la CRESS with a hint of psychedelia creating a hybrid that is a monster on its own. Seven tracks in nearly 16 filled minutes which keeps us hoping for more soon.
The record comes in a 350 gsm reverse board sleeve designed by Szymon Siech with a 12 page A6 lyric booklet.
Gnod. What to say about Gnod? Tripped out psych and drone noise collective that will astound. Originally purchased on digital, I went back for the vinyl. This was the record that got me through 2017 and continues to see me through when the psycho right-wing capitalist fascist industrial death machine gets me down. Eve McGivern
