4.5 superbdanielito19 | August 15th 14

German crust troupe Alpinist have released a sludgy landmark with 2009's minus.mensch. Just listen to the fantastically named riff maelstrom that is "Nighttime Poet Daytime Dead" for Tragedy-esque guitars, Cursed-like production, and Napalm Death song structure. Nearly all the tracks are charmingly named and have nonstop hooky riffs and grimy bass typical of neocrust. The sludge elements add to the crushing atmosphere of the album and lend it an identity separate from its influences, as demonstrated by slower tracks like "Rost." All in all, Alpinist have crafted an impressive record, a true crust punk landmark.

The Charme of Dominating's build section is thunderously adrenaline pumping. and the riffs that come in on the break have
to be some of the best I've heard. Can't get enough of it. Nighttime Poet, Daytime Dead ends similarly sick.

Whole album is awesome; its too bad their follow-ups didn't match this one.
