The Skinny: Uncompromising crossover outfit SSS (Short Sharp Shock) will release their Prosthetic debut, Limp.Gasp.Collapse., on November 10th. With a background deeply rooted in the UK hardcore underground, SSS truly embody the “crossover” tag, bringing together an aggressive hardcore attitude, punk/crust defiance, metal precision and grindcore’s raw intensity. The band’s gritty style draws from such heavyweights as Discharge, DRI, Napalm Death, Infest, Terrorizer and Mötorhead. Nonplussed as always, the enraged lyrical content of SSS rails against a misanthropic modern age while never losing that self-effacing sarcasm that can cut the self-righteous to the quick.
Alongside years of venomous live shows and an urgent socio-political message that is more important today than it ever was, here is a band that asks you to finally open your eyes and look around. Surely the band’s most dynamic and heaviest work to date, the message of Limp.Gasp.Collapse. is bold and uncompromising, its playing showing a band on top of their game.
