BAND: Rorschach .
ALBUM: Protestant (1993). .
This album changed it all hands down. Any band that blended hardcore/blast beats/punk/metal and discordant riffs owes this band a debt of gratitude. Super underrated band especially for the time they were doing what they were doing. As long as I live I will never forget dropping the needle on this record and reading the lyrics “asphalt head rush let’s take a turn for the worse.” The 16 year old me was sitting in my bedroom jaw on the floor just in awe. I had the absolute privilege of seeing them when they briefly reunited and played a handful of shows. I was loosing my mind singing along and slamming into anyone near me. Members of this band would go on to form the equally underrated and incredible bands “Deadguy” and “Kiss It Goodbye.” If you were to ask me to pick my favorites in the style of heavy/aggressive music all three of these bands would be in the conversation (alongside a band from Arizona called “Groundwork”). Massive massive respect and all hails to the almighty “Rorschach!” They were a creative, “came out of nowhere” blend of styles and riffs like no one else type band. People don’t make music this raw, visceral and abstract anymore... You can find a discography (see the second photo) on digital steaming platforms (you will hear the album crackles and the needle as it is a recording taken straight from the vinyl). Do yourself a favor and have a listen. Keep in mind when it came out and how it was recorded (ie zero studio tricks, pro tools etc. just 4 guys going for it). One of my all time favorite bands regardless of genre (because they sort of don’t fit into any or rather encompass a plethora of them. It’s just full on aggression and angst. #Rorschach #Hardcore #Abstract #UnTouchable #SeverelyUnderratedBand #Pioneers #DeadGuy #KissItGoodbye #Raw #ArtRock #Metal #Grind #Discordant #Legends #GameChanger #JesseLeach #FavoriteBands #PowerViolence
