Review: Milligram

“This is Class War”
(Small Stone Records)

Straight from the murky depths of blistered punk rock comes Milligram. They are loud and sound the way a riot feels. You can tell something is happening, but everything is so crunched together and moving so fast you can’t tell what that something is. They work as a unit well, but the definition between guitars and bass is nonexistent. Random cymbal crashes and a singer can be heard over the roar of guitars, but everything feels like it is one second from falling apart.

Speaking of falling apart, Milligram disbanded in the summer of 2002 and this album was released posthumously. If distorted blind punk is your bag pick up “This is Class War” and support this band that doesn’t exist anymore.
