Languid-Resist Mental Slaughter LP/tape

Ok, this is not seven inch but no big deal, its good record, great enought to listen it again and again without getting bored, so here it is, a new post after one and a half year.
There are myriads of Discharge clones,an endless parade of mumerous bands that tried to copy the spirit and feeling of Discharge all these decades since the D-beat fathers founded the genre.Many of them managed to release great records. Dischange was one of them, they released if not the best, maybe one of the top Discharge clone records ever and 25 years after the release of Seeing Feeling Bleeding, Languid from Canada unleashed a record probably trying to catch the Discharge vibe, a record which captures perfectly the  feeling of Dischange. Languid come from Edmonton, they haven't any facebook no any other site, just a bandcamp page. They started in winter 2014 and members carry a history in bands such as Tarantuja, Messiahlator, Total War, Geister, Unearn and others. Resist Mental Slaughter was recorded in Octomber 2015 and apart from this they have a 4 track demo and No Solace In The Future's Void A Hellish Oblivion 7" under  their belt. Resist.. was self-released in 2017 as vinyl in 500 cospies and Hardcore Hell  from Malaysia released it as cassette in 2018. Listeners not familiar with the band might be confused by the epic cover artwork made by Andy from Vastation, Effluxus and Darkwood Design and maybe expect some War crust/Stenchcore and not some old school D-beat, but hey, Anti Cimex did the same with Scandinavian Jawbreaker and Country Of Sweden covers. The songs were recorded and mixed by Derek Orthner from Begrime Exemious, Kenko from Dischange and  Meanwhile did the mastering at Communichaos Media Clay Station. The inner sleeve delivers the lyrics and poster of front cover artwork. Lyrics are included in the tape version as well.
The music on vinyl and tape surface lasts nearly 22 minutes and delivers D-beat hardcore punk at its finest: Catchy guitar riffs and distorted bass, D-beat driving force and rough vocals, and if this description sounds generic let me tell you this the voice complexion and the guitar sound seem to come from an alternative recording of Seeing Feeling Bleeding. The whole record is interesting, all songs stand in same level and the band manages to avoid repetitiveness and boring shit by bringing smart ideas and nice riffs. The sound quality is the typical for the genre bringing the raw heaviness needed and the vocals are nicely placed.
All and all, the record delivers the goods, its interesting from the first to the last riff and never let you down,  there is nothing to complain and stands well among the many D-beat releases that see the light of day every year. The band maybe has some copies of vinyl or you can dig it since pops up here and there.
