Trash Talk - Self Titled
Formed in the fall of 2005, Trash Talk made a name of them in a rapid way. Three years of relentless touring and five releases later, they established themselves as one of the hardest working hardcore bands around. With their live performances which often end up in total chaos and mayhem, their name was made. This band is to be seen as well to be heard, but live they are absolute one of the strongest outfits in hardcore today!

A few months back I discovered two of their old 7” EPs, Walking Disease and Plagues. Those two records still make their rounds on my turntable very frequently. They absolutely blew my head off! It had been a while, that I heard a hardcore band play so aggressively, pissed off and fast! There for I was really anxious to check out this album.

Trash Talk’s debut album kind of picks up the same path where the previous 7” EPs left off. I hear some differences in their sound on this album though. The old stuff was straight up, fast, angry, pissed off hardcore in the vein of Infest, Negative Approach and Charles Bronson. On this album I hear a slight shift to the mid 90’s powerviolence sound, which bands like Despised You and Lack Of Interest had. Overall this new album has more slower, pounding, heavy as fuck power chords in it.

Still, the aggression and power that drips of this record, is absolutely impressive. You can feel the anger and aggression in it! The recordings, done by no other than Steve Albini (Nirvana, Melvins, Neurosis), makes Trash Talk’s sound even rawer, aggressive and harsh. I think their awesome mix of fast, grinding guitars and pounding slow parts, will even appeal to people not familiar with the hardcore scene. With 12 songs in less than 15 minutes, this album is ideal for people with a short attention span.

By far one of the best hardcore records I heard in a long time. What an adrenaline rush! If you have the chance, go and see the madness called Trash Talk, you won’t regret it!
