|3.5 great||Alabaster Jones | July 10th 15|
Here we witness the beginnings of Amebix, one of the most important names in punk, but also the further development of the crust punk genre. Their debut EP gives insight into what they would eventually become, but also has its own charm to it as well. It shows the riffier side of Amebix on tracks like "Carnage", while also showing their intense punk energy on songs like "Curfew". There's almost black metal-like production values here, with the drums remaining consistently low in the mix and the riffs all being pretty murky. The bass is audible and a great force, especially on "No Gods, No Masters". The vocals are shouted with varying degrees of gruffness, and are typically raw, but understandable and fun to hear. In all, the birth of Amebix helped flesh out crust punk as a genre, which makes this EP an important listen any way you slice it.
