I was extremely impresed with the ferocious nature of lock-up like others I was n't sure how it would be. What I heard was a tough guitar sound and an unstoppable heaviness.
What drew me most to Lock-up is my interest in Nick Barker he is truly the best drummer I have ever heard brilliant kick work, a great departure from hid Cradle' work more ferocious no sublty, which he will no doubt show on the new Dimmu'album. not as many great fills but from what I can gather his performance was basically improv. Neverthless the album rivalls 'Panzer division Marduk' for heaviness.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Instant Classic! Raw, Sinister, Blistering. 22 Feb. 2002
By Ken - Published on
Format: Audio CD
According to legend, the idea of Lock Up was born out of a barroom conversation between a handful of legendary personalities within the extreme music scene who reminisced about the early days of death metal and grind. In their likely drunken haze, they longed for the days before synths, keyboards, and goth and operatic vocals intruded on unholy blastbeat territory. As such, it's a pretty safe bet that the phrase "old-school" was tossed around liberally. The guilty party - Dimmu Borgir/ex-Cradle Of Filth skins demigod Nick Barker and Napalm Death maniacs Jesse Pintado (ex-Terrorizer) and Shane Embury. Eventually, a pact was made to bring it all back just for the pure thrill of making it short, fast, straightforward, and violent again. When it was ultimately set into motion, the boys decided to keep the budget miniscule for today's standards and spend as little time in the studio as possible. Jesse and Shane wrote the songs with a 4-track beforehand, and when they met up with Nick in the studio they just filled him in on what to play for each song right on the spot. That's right - no rehearsals. And as legend has it, the entire album was recorded in one take. In no time at all, a modern grind masterpiece sat triumphantly in the bowels of what was left of the recording equipment. All that was left were the vocals, and that honorable duty was respectfully handed to Hypocrisy frontman and Abyss studio wizard Peter Tagtgren. And, despite how much it sounds like a cliché, the rest is history...
With the full speed intensity of opener "After Life In Purgatory" it's obvious that these grind fiends took their violent desires seriously. As expected, elements of the songwriters' day jobs occasionally permeated the proceedings, but it's still far from a carbon copy of Napalm Death. As mentioned earlier, these furious blasts are short and sweet - averaging little more than two minutes per track. There's very little in the way of dynamic tinkering. Anything extraneous or unnecessary - like stereotypical wind/stormy weather intro effects, acoustic passages, symphonic interludes, etc... - was left by the wayside, forcing each track to remain streamlined into concise blasts of pure death-grind energy. "Delirium" utilizes a fair bit of variety by blazing through a death-laden punk-ish verse and then blows you out the window with a hellish firestorm chorus. "Slow Bleed Gorgon" packs in the doom riffs to which you can't help but crank up... and with little warning it transmogrifies into the suitably malicious title track. The deeper you get into the disk, the more infectious it gets... and before you can do anything about it, you're terminally down with whiplash from the pounding your skull has suffered.
Peter Tagtgren's vocals add an even more guttural viciousness to the tracks; one can only wonder from where he got the extra dose of hateful inspiration to lacerate that throat of his. Ultimately, this completely nihilistic musical approach is seemingly the perfect platform for the socio-political stance he adopts with each set of lyrics. His condemnation of humanity and it's subsequent failures are at once malicious and spiteful, yet poignant and right-on-the-mark - in effect, totally reminiscent of the best political grindcore acts of yesteryear.
I'm pretty certain that the desire to hear more old school grind doesn't stop with the members of Lock Up, so I've been somewhat baffled as to why this supergroup's debut didn't do as well as I imagined it would have. Perhaps it's going to remain an under-appreciated milestone that'll become a cult classic album many years after its release, just like the band Terrorizer, with which Lock Up has so much in common (obviously). In the meantime, "Pleasures Pave Sewers" is an awesome slab of technically flawless rage that shouldn't be missed. Fans of Terrorizer, Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror, and so forth should put to rest any qualms about Lock Up being simply a `side project' and invest in "Pleasures Pave Sewers", easily one of the most scalding releases of 1999. As the band themselves have plainly put: "Dirty noise for dirty minds. Let your ears wallow in filth."

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! 3 Nov. 2005
By Johnny - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have been looking for this for years, being a huge Napalm fan. I've had Hate Breeds Suffering for a while now and I needed to get my hands on this album. GET IT NOW! This is pure grinding fury. This isn't very different from HBS, except for the vocals and production, which is a little more raw- a good thing in my opinion. This is exactly what you want from grind...pure aggression with no trace of subtlety. And keep in mind that this is basically a super group for extreme metal. SYou've got the amazing drums of Nick Barker, although used much more aggressively than in COF or dimmu, plus the immense grind talents of Shane Embury and Jesse Pintado...legends of the genre. To top it all off you have the aggressively screamed vocals of Peter Tartgen, perfect for this music.

You need this album if you want to bang your head to some well executed grind chock full of aggression.
5.0 out of 5 stars this is a headbanger's dream 15 Jan. 2001
By Edge Of Darkness - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Lock up is a heavy band mixed with death metal, black metal, and speed/thrash metal. this cd is one of the most heaviest, fastest album ever made, the line up is Peter tagtgren (vocalist of Hypocrisy), Jesse Pintado (guitar player of Napalm death) Shane embury (bassist of Napalm death), and Nick barker (drummer of Cradle of filth, and Dimmu borgir). My favorite songs are Afterlife in purgatory, and The dreams are sacrificed. After listening to this cd will make you have a headache, if you hypocrisy, then you will like this band. If you want something very heavy and very fast and to impress your headbanger friends and give your neighboors a headache, then PICK UP THIS CD NOW!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Killer 13 Mar. 2000
By Giuseppe Romanzo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
You want to listen to the fastest, most brutal, most gruesome music today? Pick LOCK UP right now. It has the flawless drum session of Nick Barker (former Cradle of Filth, currently playing with Dimmu Borgir, Borknagar and Brujeria), the nasty guitar playing of Jesse Pintado (guitar player of Napalm Death, Brujeria, and others), the bass and inspiration of Shane Embury (the bassist of Napalm Death), and the screams of the singer of Hipocrisy. You won't regret it. For now, it has my vote for "new group" CD of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars ME 2 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is Terrorizer revisited. Any death/grind fan MUST buy this now! There are no keyboards, female vocals, or samples...this is pure destruction! The formula is simple: brutal riffs + blast beats + hateful vocals= LOCK UP. Excellent production makes this a complete, professional package. I KNEW when I saw that the members were from Napalm Death, Cradle of Filth, and Hypocrisy that this album would KILL me! One of the best of the past year!
