Reviews

CIRCLE OF DEAD CHILDREN - THE GENOCIDE MACHINE - DEATHVOMIT/NECROPOLIS
Rookie gang Circle Of Dead Children is a grind/hardcore band hailing from Pennsylvania. The band is quite extreme in most departments, meaning a match for the taste buds of everyone from Blood to Brutal Truth and underground bands like Fuck The Facts. The political message and speed come together to make for an anti-commercial statement. Alas, this band belongs more on Relapse than on Necropolis. Their home state and hardcore leanings aside; there is not only the Brutal Truth inspiration, but also the odd electronic moment. Too bad, for TUR likes its music purely metallic and void of industrial or HC elements. With Necropolis usually opting for pure metal (ie Defiled, Rotten Sound, etc.) this one should have come out on Relapse. Still, Circle is an extreme band (and judging by the lyrics politically well-intentioned) and worth a nod for when it gets going watch for things to break and break hard. Look for a 'concert' video clip on the CD as well.
