Released: 2014, Moshpit Tragedy
Reviewer: Aaron Yurkiewicz
Ready for some “pay what you want” grind? Good, because you’re in for a treat. From the good folks at Moshpit Tragedy comes a new 7” split featuring Dogma and Corrupt Leaders that should fulfil your longing for quality D-Beat crust grind. Quick, ugly and to the point – the world needs more of this.
Corrupt Leaders is an Ontario based outfit that sounds like a Phobia/Extreme Noise Terror crossover; kinda doomy, kinda hardcore, but totally heavy. “Antennas” is a killer track, and is the definite standout of the split. Dogma is an Indiana based trio that’s a little more punkified, but no less intense. They’ve got a more bottom end heavy sound that contrasts well against Corrupt Leaders’ low-fi assault. All in, it’s a quick 10 minute blitz of caustic obliteration, but I’ll take a hit like this over some bloated spandex and mascara orchestral movement any day of the week.
And it’s available as a name your price digital download, so you’ve got nothing to lose. I’ve already found myself digging through both Corrupt Leaders’ and Dogma’s Bandcamp pages, and there’s plenty of other great stuff to be found – most, if not all, of which is also available as a name your price download. Get out of your comfort zone and spend of few minutes on the rougher side of the tracks, not for the faint of heart.
