(record review)Heckel & Jeckel-Fourth death(P.O.G.O.Records)

Heckel & Jeckel have a record out on P.O.G.O.Records, so it was about time for me to listen and review it for this zine.

I didn˙t find much info about these guys. All I can say that it is a masked duo and that this record contains 4 songs. The music is a bit special and a bit harsh for listening if you are not a fan of such music. These guys play dirty punkrock with some sludge, electronic and even a little grungy influences. The sludge parts are nicely done and I must especially mention I Crush You Under My Shoes which made me really nervous while listening, but I guess that was the intention hehehe. Every song is different and you can listen it as a different whole and independent from the record. I personally liked Not To Touch The Earth the most, being somehow the best song on the record in my opinion. This is noisy kind of punkrock, so if you are a fan of such music, go grab this one, for me it was somehow not my cup of tea unfortunately.
