    <b> Venetian Snares </b> - Meathole

    From the obscene title, perhaps you'll deduce that this won't be a walk in the park. And if you know Venetian Snares, you'll know what to expect. His last album combined a Hungarian folk influence with skull-busting drum and bass. Unfortunately, he's ditched the Hungarian element to focus purely on horrific breakcore and nasty drum and bass, guaranteed to give you a headache. Dark d&b can be wicked when it's done right, but this lacks any form of funk or groove. This could have been produced at any point over the last few years and offers no fun whatsoever - unless you're a masochist. For speed-snaffling nutcases and chin-stroking ponces only.
