Album Review: ACxDC - G.O.A.T.
Reviewed by Patrick O'Reilly

ACxDC, or to give them their proper name, Anti-Christ Demoncore make, quite appropriately, one hell of a racket. Celebrating their 21st birthday this is a band who have been around the block a few times, yet this is only their second album. G.O.A.T is an acronym for Greatest of All Time and although I wouldn't quite go as far as describing the band as such they are definitely in the upper tiers of bands in the grind/power violence/ punk genres.

A blistering start to the album comes courtesy of track ‘Wanna See a Dead Body’ and from there the assault never lets up. The album is absolutely jam packed with blast beats, d-beats, frenzied hardcore riffs and a huge range of screamed, hellish vocals. Occasionally the band give a riff room to breathe and slow down to create a bit of atmosphere but then it soon returns to balls to the wall crazy grind.

Album Review: ACxDC - G.O.A.T.

The level of aggression on this album is off the charts, not only sonically but lyrically as well, thanks to a handy lyrics sheet it becomes obvious that the band are not screwing around, with songs about personal tragedy, self-loathing, politics and social issues to be found on the album.

The jarring lyrics are perfectly married to the outlandish music creating a true frenzy of noisy chaotic grind. As much as I loved the album and felt energized by its furious delivery, I imagine it is in the live environment that this band thrive, and this is something I would very much like to see and experience.
