xBrainiax is a familiar name for those into fast hardcore. The ideas of No Comment taken to their conclusion, a nonstop whirlwind, insane complicated arrangements too fast and too furious for my brain to keep up with. To me, the first 7” is a bit of a modern classic, light-years ahead of all their contemporaries conceptually and stylistically, and each further split 7” stepped closer to mastering this style. This split is raw 4-track recordings, 3 short/fast/loud numbers and 1 long and slow creeper, to be filed with their upcoming LP as their best records yet. Lettuce Vultures is the Sockeye crew up to their usual hijinks. 3 tardcore anthems for fans of intelligent art music. If you’re not already familiar, well ahhhhh maybe it’s not for you. I would however like to nominate their rendition of “Walking on Sunshine” as the best cover song of the year.

A match made in heaven. REALLY proud of this one.
Some of the best material from both bands, with fucking AMAZING art from Food. xBrainiax were the best American power violence band of the time (second best in the world only to Endless Blockade), and I can thank this record for introducing me to the living legend and artistic genius known as Food.
