Insect Warfare - World Extermination (May 12, 2007)

"Well, I was feeling my most alienated, depressed, and angry during the sessions that produced that LP. That discontent echoes throughout the record and that’s why it sounds the way it does. Every other record was written with idea of "hey, lets make 10 more songs for a split". With World Extermination I was trying to channel the same power I got from such records as From Enslavement, Teen Ass Revolt, Ulterior, Anticapitol, and Kings of Punk. I am very happy with how the record came out." - Beau Beasley.

If you aren't familiar with Insect Warfare, you're quite a bit late since they broke up last year. However, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the best grindcore album released this decade. Take a group of Texan elitist antisocial pricks waging war on false grind, add the production values of something that was recorded in two days in someone's living room, add layers of noise that even Merzbow would be jealous of, and add a hint of 80s nostalgia for the classics like Terrorizer and Repulsion. The result is the perfect soundtrack to go curb stomp girls who pierce their septums and wear Orchid shirts.
