First Album

GSL 15

Released on May 25, 1999

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

GSL's best-selling release to date is the debut "full-length" from San Diego's THE LOCUST. Clocking in at about 13 minutes, the record wastes no time in pummeling anyone within earshot. Combining a variety of sounds and aesthetics (CROSSED OUT, DEICIDE, DEVO and MOTLEY CRUE all come to mind), THE LOCUST have amassed a loyal following far and wide, and this record is a good indication as to why. Brutal, relentless blasts of 45-second mayhem whose titles take longer to read than the songs do to play: "Skin Graft at Seventy-Five Miles an Hour", "Fixed Companionship, Ghost Town Irrationality", "High-Maintenance Libido, Bring the Whole Family". These are cynical, scathing reactions to suburban myopia, tailormade for a generation of attention-deficit latchkey kids. "Camo"-colored vinyl on the 12", and the CD is a 3". NOT a mini-disc, but a standard CD with a couple inches trimmed off.

Just when you thought the Locust's new material was abrasive enough, how's about an earful of their debut album? There's a lot of cool videogame-style synth mixed in with the brutal guitars, bass and drum, all frequently played at simultaneous notes (if notes are even present), resembling the sound of getting run over by an 18-wheeler, and bizarre, cryptic song titles with lyrics non sequitur to the track names. Super swell!

The Locust before they were huge and pompous. Very simplistic, very loud, very abrasive. I prefer Plague Soundscapes for it's songwriting, but if you want it immature, easy to follow, and insane, this is your album.

Sick, fast, hard, goofy. This CD is quick and to the point with each song packing in less than a minute you dont get lost in melody, or lyrics. This CD is like ######## on fire, free falling through space, while being chased by ninjas with lasers and rocket boots. Tap this CD

Good, but has major problems. The synth lines are really uncreative and boring. Its also really redudent. If you want their best stuff get their first EP.

locust hits you like a tattoo gun on a brand new sunburn, fast, grinding, and at small intervals that leave you begging for more of the pain! this is an album that truly leaves a mark. imagine if your favorite crust band beat the shit out of a new wave band and taxed their keyboard. these guys change tempos like a jr. high kid in the bathroom with his favorite spank mag. they really can't be compared to anyone, which is a plus! they deffinantly have crust punk and metal influences. the songs sound as strange as the titles. if crust punk evolved this is what it would sound like! it's cool that epitaph would sighn a band like this. i give it a four. great album! five stars are so easily given out. if someone likes the album the automatically give it five, it seems like every fucking album review on this website gets a five. what the fuck is up with that? if you like crust or whatever denomination of metal that is cool right now i strongly recomend this!

Wow. Definitely one of the most unique grind/noise bands I've heard. Each song strikes me as well organized yet chaotic attacks of screaming, crushing-buzzsaw guitar riffs, and lyrics that leave me scratching my head. Definitely worth having in your record collection.

Forget metalcore, hardcore, death metal, speed metal, and groin metal; this is the most intense music in the world.

Synthesizers and guitars come at you at the same time, while a guy screams at the top of his lungs as if someone was beating him to death. I know there are drums as well, but I honestly haven't noticed them.

This is only eighteen minutes long, and most of the tracks only last forty-five seconds. However, that only adds to the intensity of the album. Also, the small disc is quite a little puppy.
