The result of a glorious reconnecting of ancient forces, Satori is the second ever full-length Axegrinder album and the band's first in 29 years. A jaw-shattering tour-de-force of razor-sharp riffing, insistent muscular grooves and cacophonous industrial scree, it's much more than a simple upgrade for the duo's immortal sound: recorded at their own studio with zero outside interference, it's a wholesale re-invention, as the passion and fury of nearly three decades erupts through some of the sharpest, hardest-hitting songs you'll hear this millennium. Newly signed to Rise Above Records, Axegrinder releases Satori into a world that seems every bit as fucked up and bleak as the one they angrily assailed first time round. In reality, the anti-authoritarian message that burned at the heart of the crust-punk scene three decades ago has never lost its relevance or its power. From the crushing, slow-burn assault of "Halo (Snakes For The Breeding)" to the warped, nihilistic balladry of epic closer "Too Far From Home," this is music that screams its righteous fury and creative clout from the rooftops.
