Total Abuse: Prison Sweat
On their third LP "Prison Sweat" Total Abuse blast and sometimesalmost sludge through 7 tracks of great hardcore punk (with two tracks reaching over the 7 minute mark). Opening with an opus of blistering, seething, crunching noise then bursting into tracks that are as catchy and nauseous as their influences, This is Total Abuse at their best and most ferociously open. TA posses an honesty and anger missing from a lot of their contemporaries allowing them to dwell deep in your brain for a long while after you listen. First pressing is a limited run of 500 and the record includes a writing collaboration between Total Abuse and Chicago based Writer / Musician Peter Sotos, who's writings and ethos has influenced the TA project from its inception.
