Manic - "Manic" (2012)

I posted their demo earlier and in that post I promised a rip of this, and my friend John came through way faster than I expected.  Anyway this band sounds like the best parts of Koro, Pollution, Double Negative and Animosity-era Corrosion of Conformity thrown in a blender to me.  This record is explosive, fast, frantic, dark and noisy.  It opens with feedback, and a speedy, choppy, distorted riff that really sets the tone for this record, however the stand out track here is the closing track to the b-side "Leeches", where the guitar and bass lock perfectly together created a very tight song that somehow sounds like it's going to fall apart at the same time. 

This record may very well be my favorite thing this year.  It's insane how this has flown under the radar.  Not only is it really fucking good, it's also unique, and if I hear one more uninspired Hoax rip off band or another whack ass mid-tempo "oi influenced" band I'm gonna puke
