Dripping aggression. Relentless maschismo. Unforgiving d-beat. These are the tenants of Mutilation Rites, one of Brooklyn's finest black metal acts. Partnered with the technical dissonance of Subjugation, the inexorable thrash of Sacrificial Massacre, and the Acheron's powerfully distorted sound system and the result is sonic death... or something similar. Two days into the New Year and things are already looking pretty heavy. Ear plugs are probably a good idea, but not recommended.
