DEATH TOLL 80K -

Info

Nobody likes style over substance, especially not grindcore fans – but style and substance? Hell yeah, that shit's the holy grail of rumbling crust grind, and it's only right that you should find it at OBSCENE EXTREME 2011.


Everything you need to know about DEATH TOLL 80K (a good '80s, nuclear terror name!) you can get from the cover of their debut album, the long awaited “Harsh Realities” (another good, solid punk rock album title) on FDA REKOTZ, with the vinyl and CD covers showing good old fashioned crust images of wartorn landscapes and uncaring soldiers.


Maximum crust points!


Forming in 2005 in Lappeenranta, Finland, by 2008 this youthful, fresh-faced four-piece had already toured Germany, Sweden, the Czech Republic and played the mighty OBSCENE EXTREME for the first time, following this up with a European tour with Turkish blastmasters SAKATAT, and a Finnish tour with the much hyped BLOODY PHOENIX.


DEATH TOLL 80K have proved themselves every bit the relentless brutalists their name, and sound - all AGATHOCLES, early NAPALM DEATH, FEAR OF GOD, INSECT WARFARE, LYCANTHROPY, etc etc - suggests.


If they were American, they'd be on 625 THRASH, and that's as high as praise possibly gets.
