Loaded For Bear & Bizarre X - Split CD (2007)

Loaded For Bear is from Chicago, USA and Bizarre X from somewhere in Germany. Both bands play a goofy and quirky mixture of grindcore, powerviolence and fastcore; maybe comparable to a more grindcore version of the sillier early Slap-A-Ham or 625 Thrashcore bands. Loaded For Bear have a bit of a heavier grinding sound and have a bit more speed, while Bizarre X is slightly more mellow sounding although still fantastic and very catchy. Neither of two are really 'political' at all, but I noticed that Loaded For Bear appears to be quite involved in the social justice activism and Bizarre X adamantly makes a point of opposing sexism, racism, homophobia, etc. The split was release on both 12" LP and CD (this is the CD version) by a bunch of labels that discogs can tell you about.
