5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra-brutal Grindcore supergroup, 6 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Hate Breeds Suffering (Audio CD)
LockUp sound exactly like the sum of their parts, and when you consider what their constituent parts are, this is a Very Good Thing indeed. This Grindcore supergroup amount to Napalm Death with Nick Barker on drums and Tomas Lindberg singing, and this is exactly how they sound; Napalm�s caustic, hyperspeed Grind riffing courtesy of Shane Embury and Jesse Pintado, backed by big Nick�s inhumanly fast blastbeats and double bass runs with Tomas� agonised screams leading the whole assault. If you�re a fan of any of the bands associated with the members of LockUp, you�ll certainly enjoy this. Fast and brutal, with short songs and no messing about, it�s how Grindcore should be played. The best aspect for me about �Hate Breeds Suffering� as compared with its predecessor �Pleasures Pave Sewers� (a fine album in its own right) is the presence of Lindberg on vocals instead of Hypocrisy�s Peter Tägtren. Tomas� vocals simply suit the music far better than Peter�s did. Despite not singing on this second record though, Tägtren remains in place on the album�s production side. On an album like this, it�s hard to recommend stand-out tracks, as they all tend to blast past at 100mph and blur into one brutal whole, but at a push, I�d have to pick out the superbly titled �High Tide In A Sea Of Blood�, as it is one of the only songs here with a relatively obvious shout-along chorus. If you like your metal as brutal and as fast as it comes, be sure to check this out, you won�t be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!, 21 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Hate Breeds Suffering (Audio CD)
This is totally brilliant. With a band featuring (ex)members of Napalm Death and At The Gates, you can't go wrong. Some "side projects" can be lame, some can be excellent. Max Cavalera's Nailbomb LP is a case in point; that was the last good thing he recorded.
The musical sound of this is a grinding sound, extremely fast. Shane Embury's guitar work is magnificent, equals any of Napalm Death's best work. Tomas Lindberg's vocal style has "mellowed", the shrieking in his At The Gates days has been replaced by "low" vocals (not growling). This immediately grabbed my attention the second I heard it. Excellent.
