(( RECOMMENDED )) top notch Michigan power-violence!!

THREATENER The Hammering, The Fastening, And The Bending Of Throats CD
*** "A collection of all output by this 1000mph Michigan mayhem blast squad: EPs, Comps, Radio session plus extra tracks galore. Its pure mayhem, most songs 30 seconds or less - a total audio assault on the senses. This CD is the true definition of blurcore. Easily one of the best fastcore bands from the past decade - hold onto your meat sacks."

Upon hearing both Bad Brains and Minor Threat for the first time, it sounded as though only three tracks had passed by the cassettes' end. Eventually those records stopped being blurs and the spaces between songs became distinguishable. This is what separates those bands from Threatener. These brutal, claustrophobic, and short blasts could be listened to time and time over and they will always fuck you up.
