Obscene Gesture - Living In Profanity
Old school is back! Old school thrash/hardcore that is! Some of you might have noticed the hype around Municipal Waste, like the gentlemen of Obscene Gesture, who feature in their ranks ex-members of the original Agent Steel line-up, and people from Gutterthug and Body Count. Quite some names here, how about the music?
 
I must say that after seeing Municipal Waste live, Iíve bought their album and I canít get enough of it. But in that case everything about the band is perfect. The music, the style, the looks, the production of the music, artwork, everything fits. Obscene Gesture breathes the same ideology as Municipal Waste, but the main difference is that Living In Profanity isnít nearly as nicely produced and mastered as Municipal Wasteís last effort The Art Of Partying. This really spoils the fun. At first it gives a real old school sensation, but as the tracks pass by you really lose interest. Especially when you realize there are 21 of them.
 
The entire old school formula is presented to you here. So fans of stuff like D.R.I., S.O.D., Slayer and Cryptic Slaughter for instance can eat their heart out here. If you can hear through the production that is. The band seems and sounds like a bunch of sympathetic chums, and I bet that a live show where enough beer is consumed probably ends in a wild party.
 
For me it doesnít cut it compared to the guys at the top if this resurrected scene, but within time they might become a worthy addition. The experience and skill is definitely there, just wrap it in a 21st century package please, instead of an 80ís 8-track recording.
