Arguably the most potent musical force Australian music has seen in the last couple years, Perth’s EXTORTION are set to launch a fresh attack on the senses with their latest balls-out thrash incursion, “loose screws”. A 12 track effort pushes EXTORTION’s well-established power-violence sound to face-ripping new extremes. Recorded across 3 continents, the basic tracks were laid down in California by producer Dan Rathbun (Tragedy, His Hero is Gone, Talk Is Poison), then completed vocals in Perth. As one final flourish, UK-based celebrity EXTORTION fan, Barney of NAPALM DEATH, added his unmistakable roar to the aptly titled “grind to a halt”.
