Well this is the first full length album by PSYCHO in over 20yrs!!! Wow...the earth is really being dug up everywhere and some classic buried bands are still fucking alive under there...which is great. Boston's own Punk, Grindcore sons are back, well still here. The album is "Chainsaw Priest"...4th album in quite an extensive back catalogue of splits, and EP's as well. These guys have been punching the face of the earth since 1981, releasing their debut EP in '83.

Now although this is the first 'full length' in over 20yrs they have not just sat there. Well apart form a 12 year hiatus, because in 2008 they came back with a double, yes 2 not one, album of early stuff, then there was a DVD, a CD with a self-title...and then a comp, The Grind Years came in 2010, followed by 2 EP's and we arrive here at Chainsaw Priest. Phew..!

OK so, you like ANAL CUNT? Buy it! UNSEEN TERROR? Get it! SOB? What you waiting for? It is punk and hard and grinds like a motherfucker, sharp, short, kicks and punches...great feel, great production, no bullshit...17 tracks of pure physical, explosive joy...stand out track? Could not pick but 'Mystery Meat' brought a smile. Worse track? Couldn't find one. I like my Grindcore from the French these days, but this is 'old-school', real. USA and PLASMATICS should not miss out on this...get some brutality down ya neck. Have some of that..!!
