Hardcore punk explosion, thirteen songs hurling fragments of melody and bombardments of lyrical attack. This is the second album from Columbia, South Carolina's Guyana Punch Line and a continuation of their quixotic quest to kick life into counter-culture thinking while trying not to laugh too hard. More to the point brutal than their debut "Maximum Smashism," the music of "Irritainment..." cues from Initial State and In/Humanity (where some members previously served time) blending moody, dark, brooding hardcore with abrasive thundering manic thrash, drifting further and further into the deep-end-with bent and destructive guitar riffs combined with a fierce, solid rhythm section back up.
Lyrically taking influence from Dead Kennedys and The Feederz school of mind-bending concepts and humor fired at rapid pace, Y2K = Year Zero! Plenty of time to smash it all down and start all over again. The record comes equipped with an extensive instruction booklet. (Prank 041)
