In short: Worth it for the Yecatl art alone.
The theory goes that if punk is the escapism, then hardcore is confrontation. Both strains are firmly rooted in the same rejection, but where punk lampoons or parodies, hardcore kicks and screams and claws. Tashme embodies this latter camp, with each song its own ugly, snarling, guttural howl, packaged in and complemented by the ever-haunting artwork of Mexico’s Yecatl Peña. This genius debut outing is a must have hardcore record for any collection that channels the fury of latter-day Spanish heavyweights like Destino Final and Glam and mixes it with the skin-crawling genius of citymates Kremlin.
