06:42 - psykometal So, like a Body Count thing? :P
04:57 - 3rdWorld Dayum, Death Grips begin their latest record with a thrash hip hop track. Sounds really awful in words but they really do make it work.
04:54 - 3rdWorld I really thought it could be from the 80's but damn thats a '12 record. Nice artist but that doesn't count out Kendrick for me.
04:45 - Apothecary Which makes sense in part, as he is from Zimbabwe by birth (hence Mugabe on that album cover)
04:45 - Apothecary Ehhh... different strokes, but I'd take Billy Woods over Kendrick any day. He is does some of the BEST sociopolitical hip hop out there imo. Profound comments on the effects of imperialism and colonialism
04:42 - 3rdWorld Good alternative hip hop track. Sounds exactly like a precursor to something that Kendrick is doing. :)

Can we please consider this a brand new release? Sure, its real release date was somewhere back in 2011, but there's something kind of defeating about discovering a top-notch album like Draw Back A Stump on its remastered/remix re-release.
Primate is probably the most apt name this band could have found - it's just so simple, unpretentious and bludgeoning, it's almost hard to believe a band this straightforward manages to still sound pretty fresh. It's basically old school hardcore revamped for a modern age. Draw Back A Stump is classic hardcore that frequently steps into grind territory, delivered through sludgy tones. Then there's this certain southern-fried undertone to the whole thing, as well...Maybe that just comes along with any sludgified music. It's almost tempting to say there is a few leads that feel like nods to greasy southern rock, but everything is blasted forth in such a rattling, grimy blur, it's hard to pick out the subtleties.
So let's forget the subtleties, because there ain't many. Simply put, Draw Back A Stump is a face value type of album. As in, picking valuable face fragments off the wall behind you after listening to this.
All shitty puns aside, Primate rule, that's all there really is to it. If you like solidly obnoxious music, maybe somewhere in the same region as Hank III's Assjack, there should be no reason to glance past this. Trying to go into any deeper detail about music like this is completely asinine.
The only track I heard was the one they made a lyric video for (don't even remember which song it was for). Though after reading your review and noticing the track entitled "Get The Fuck Off My Lawn", I'm definetly going to check the rest of it out.
