Mörser - Two Hours to Doom (1997)
Here's some fucking insane German hardcore shit. This album is a shining example of what's come to be known as "bremen style" hardcore or the "per koro sound." It's sort of like a marriage between 90s metallic hardcore and aggressive, tremolo-picked European "screamo" riffs that seem to hum out of the speakers. Don't let the emo reference put you off- this is about as scathing and wimp-free as music gets. Two Hours to Doom is so blazing fast that its basically grindcore, and if memory serves this band has 4 vocalists and 2 bass players. Ridiculous, amazing album. Your head will be spinning. Get it now.
