CPU RAVE - Compressed (Guest Review By Ralph J Rivera)


  I've LOVED "Crust/Anarcho" Punk since I was a teenager many moons ago. The music & lyrics always spoke to me in a different way than other styles of Punk music. The one record that really made a mark on me was Disorder's "Distortion To Deafness" EP. Completely pushing the boundaries of "music" in general. Who would have thought those cider brained lunatics would have such a lasting impression on generations of kids.

   One of those bands is CPU RAVE from Montreal, Canada. Since 2018 they released a 7 song demo and an ep called "Mood Fucker". Then nothing.....until now! They're back with a brand new EP called "Coded Collapse". 

  5 brain melting new songs that pick up right where they left off. Ragu's guitar is turned up to 11 with maximum distortion and the rhythm section just push everything into the red. BUT you've never heard anything like their "singer" Mimi! She wails like an unhinged banshee and at times I don't even think she's saying words, just primal animal screams! This EP will cause you serious hearing and mental damage. I'm posting the lead off track "Compressed" just to set you up for what you're in for. ENJOY!
