Paranoid: Satyagraha

A Swedish Hardcore-Punk outfit hurtling through reverbed vocals and drums of utter destruction, 偏執症者 (Paranoid) are intent on careening straight into and then right through you with 28 minutes of out and out mayhem fuelled aggression.

However there's real depth here, from the band name (which doesn't have the translation with it on the cover), to the song titles and cover art becoming more poignant when you discover the album was mixed and mastered in Japan. In the end it all feels intrinsically linked and then shredded to within an inch of its very existence. There's no let up as the wall of vocals and hammer smack drums shove forcefully through fuzzed guitars, having to hitting twice as hard to make the impression they do. However rather than simply hurtle at 100mph, this lot can also sit in the groove, providing vital hits of reference to make the resultant aggression becomes all the more towering.

There's no doubting that what happens throughout will prove a mighty steep step for some and with the constantly echoing vocals and heady atmospheres, this is a full on experience that never lets go for a second. You'll either be swept along by the entire thing with a joyous determination, or catapulted off the ride with such force that whatever you hit first will be splintered into smithereens.

Either way Satyagraha feels anything like its name � a policy of passive aggressive resistance. Instead coming across as the most uncompromising smash in the face you're likely to come into the proximity of for quite some time.
