LYRICS
Reviews:

I never really liked Die Kreuzen until I heard this EP. I think it's more energetic than anything else they've put out. The Dan Kubinski's voice goes from talking to growling to screaming and back - which reminds me a lot of Urban Waste. It's awesome, it sounds like he just can't control it. I don't get this feeling from the first LP (although I've grown to like that record too)... he loses the effect when he does the raspy scream nonstop.
The overall sound on this record is really raw and angry, and the songwriting is excellent. All the songs are very fast and tight, but Die Kreuzen adds this weird unique melody to it and eschews basic rhythms for unusual tempo changes. Not the deepest lyrics ("fucking teachers are all fucking fools/teach shit and teaching crap"), but anger and frustration are pretty simple emotions, y'know?
