INSECT WARFARE – World Extermination (Reissue)

Originally released some two years ago on 625 Thrashcore, the band was picking up some speed in the underground before unfortunately throwing in the towel. But thanks to reissue kings Earache Records, World Extermination is back in circulation offering up 20 tracks of fast, explosive grindcore. With subtle and not-so-subtle nods at grind legends NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER, PHOBIA, and some EXCRUCIATING TERROR and EXTREME NOISE TERROR thrown in for good measure, the LP is a text book excursion into quality hate-filled grind the way it was meant to be. Everything is quick, relentless, and unapologetic, yet not without significant song structure. There’s enough dirt for the crusties, but enough clarity and efficiency for the metal heads. As far as reissues go, there’s nary a bonus track to be found, so if you were down with INSECT WARFARE prior to 2009, there’s really no reason to pick this up. But for the rest of you snoozing on the job, INSECT WARFARE‘s World Extermination isn’t a recommended purchase, but a mandatory one as it may be a while before a grind release this awesome comes down the pike again.
