I think I was hoping when I bought this that it would be an obscure Dutch noise compilation or something, since the only band I recognized was Buzzoven (and they're kinda noisy, right?). I figured out later that Union Morbide were on one of those No Idea zine compilations that I used to have, which woulda shot down what I was thinking from the very beginning.
The Union Morbide song turned out to be the only reason to keep this record around; most of "Sing Along With..." is just average p-rock, and the Buzzoven song (recorded in 1991) is basically inept; it was probably meant to sound like C.O.C. or something, but it sounds more like that really bad Void metal LP that Touch and Go wouldn't release, or the first Die Kreuzen LP if it had been recorded by fourth graders. The Union Morbide track, on the other hand, is totally great, and sounds a lot like Snuff, or a sped-up version of that Jean Claude Jam Band song I posted a few months ago.
The Random Killing song sucks, too, but I'm posting it here because if you're one of those people who used to listen to compilations like MRR's "Not So Quiet On The Western Front" or the RRAdical "Peace" comp all the way through when you were younger, you would've heard a bunch of shitty punk rock songs exactly like this one. Think of it as a chance to revisit your roots, I guess.
