Terco / Gay Panic Defence split
Note: The infamous viral photo of the young womyn facing right-wing protesters in UK last month. S/he's our new heroïne.

Coucou, les! We're back with another short yet wholesome entry (Riiicccoooo, papiiii)...Ehemm, ok... This time, we'll feature Terco, an impressive colombian powerviolence band, and Gay Panic Defence, also a great scottish powerviolence act, split. If you have good memory, we chose Terco's self-titled as one of our best picks of 2016. It was one of the biggest surprises that really caught our attention. You can read the original review here.  

So, for this split, I have no words for describing this outstanding work. Both bands display a brutal musical execution, highly inspired by both old and new school grindcore and powerviolence. Many bands such as Siege, Dropdead, Lärm, Dystopia, ACxDC, Boak and Sex Prisoner, for naming a few, come to mind. On the other hand, Terco's featured tracks are more elaborated and refined with better instrumentation, without losing their characteristic style: playing fast as fuck with heavily critical lyrics. Last but not least, Gay Panic Defence have politically-charged lyrics treating different subjects such as LGBTI rights, anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-religion, among others. Also in this record, we see the band's musical evolution with a more contundent and relentless sound. You can check their official bandcamp account here and hear their early works. They're good as well.  

Lastly, click on the image for getting redirected to Terco's official bandcamp account where you can listen and download (paying the right price you consider or for free) this split. You can also get it through Gay Panic Defence's official bandcamp account, too. I really hope to get a physical copy soon. Highly recommended and support them. It's worth it. Another potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Enjoy and until next time. Kisses and hugs!
