Returning with their 5th full length album, "About To Crack", Dutch Hardcore Punk veterans VITAMIN X release a brutal onslaught of ferocity for which they are well known for. Right from the start this album jumps out and punches you in the face with an incredibly riveting punk/thrash crossover shredding that is, and forever will be,VITAMIN X; this is the hardcore stuff that creates a pit right here!
The album's first and title track wastes no time in breaking in the listener with its energy; nope, no beating around the bush here, it pops right into a feverishly mosh worthy, rubber sole burning, nose bleeding, fist pumping, ear splitting , stage diving song.....song ends...oh wait, another one? Hell yes! "Ready To Burn" delivers itself just as the title suggests. And "Maelstrom"? This one is a wicked risk to blood pressure too. Holy crap, man, are you ever tired of taking chances on albums, wondering if you're going to get what you paid for? Well, look no further! Lace your Vans up tight, pull your cap down snug, make sure all your speakers are hooked up and amplified, and prepare to unleash a wild beast of hard rock mayhem!!
Marc, Marko, Alex and Danny prove once again that they are never slowing down. What an awesome collective, right? And I'm not kidding, this thing is a stomping blitzkrieg of punk-metal madness from start to finish. VITAMIN X deliver 14 tracks of no holds barred punk rock of fast action thrashing, fast tempo hooks, and fabulously blistering leads. Produced by Steve Albini and recorded at his studio in Chicago, and featuring artwork by John Baizley, "About To Crack" is being released September 11th of this year (that's 911 folks) on Tankcrimes Records!
VITAMIN X are getting ready to hit a tour in Europe and the U.S.A. this fall, check out their official site for more info.
