The HIRS Collective – “Friends. Lovers. Favorites” LP
Furious power-violent thrash with a militant agenda on a righteous mission for enlightement, with a bad attitude. A collaborative project, four years in the making, featuring, amongst others, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, Shirley Manson of Garbage (seriously!), Martin of Limp Wrist/Crudos, Sadie from G.L.O.S.S. and Erica from Rvivr ec-set-ter-raa. A machinegun barrage of blastbeats and breakdowns to batter senseless the straights and the squares – and that reminds me of Pheonix Bodies, G.L.O.S.S. and Iron Lung. Also includes the 2016 EP You Can’t Kill Us, plus some additional remix versions.
