Do you remember that first moment you listened to Cloud Rat? That incredible emotional punch delivered with immediate dramatic artistry, a chaoticly self destructive marriage between its indulgently beautiful and ugly components? Well Sacridose bring just those exact butterflies back into the pit of your stomach, tingling your punk sensibilities to high heaven. The two aren't one and the same however far from it, if one were to gut Cloud Rat of its screamo influences and emotional down turns you might just resemble something crudely along the lines of Sacridose, but what undisputedly the two do share is a similar hell hath no fury like a women scorned vocal tantrum, helter skelter punk barrages, emotional authenticity and total rhythmic affluence; all the ingredients for skull crushing mastery.
Anxiety Tremors would be more accurately titled as Anger Tremors , because Sacridose are perpetually indignant their turbulent emotional storms far beyond boiling point, the very thought of them violently shaking with deep seething anger idealistically represents their musical uproar. And whilst pretty much every grind and powerviolence band may be described as angry itself going with the territory of playing extremely abrasive and noisy derivatives of punk, Sacridose mature into a far more organic and free flowing personification of anger with an embedded sense of realism and relatability that only intensifies their emotional maelstrom. Their greatly impassioned choral is strewn across a hotbed of ballistic percussive collisions and evasive string ripostes that in great colour collude in chaotic frenzy, in sharp snippets alternating between frenzied tantrums of emotional haemorrhage to brazen animalistic provocation. The undercurrent of ire slashes reason and stability letting instinct guide it towards a fracturing method of song delivery that plays heavily on spontaneity and with a disregard for elaboration in favour of letting the damage of the tantrum speak for itself, exception being a killer cover of Rudimentary Peni that exceeds the original.
No punk worth his weight in patches may deny the raw power of Anxiety Tremors nor its placement amongst the best of 2013, I for one can't detach this masterpiece from the playlist!
