Training For Utopia - Plastic Soul Impalement

Solid State, 1997, CD, Vinyl, Cassette

Once when I was younger I used to listen to a lot of pop-punk and ska-punk when all that was popular in the 90s. It was happy days listening that compared to Slayer, Machine Head and Misery Loves Co. which is what I had been listening to prior to that. It was all well and good for a while but then I got sick of it and wanted to hear some heavy metal again. I wanted it as heavy as possible with good guitars and miserable-sounding-ness. Somehow I got my hands on this record plus a few others like Vision Of Disorder, Benumb, Converge and Will Haven.
So I was quite happy with this record for a while. It has this discordant, driving, pummeling, trip to the apocalypse feel to every track. Like Will Haven - very heavy. I think it helped that there was a feeling that the world might end on the millenium and so that was reflected in the music of some bands around that time, even though they might not have explicitly expressed that like Tricky did with his album "pre-millenium tension". It had nothing to do with "nu-metal", "funk-metal" or "groove-metal" as well.
