MAAX (U.S.) “Six Pack Witchcraft” DIGI CD EP review

By Ali “The Metallian”

If anyone would like to hear what a ripping underground death metal demo back in 1985 sounded like here is the CD to get. It isn’t an underground release unearthed and issued for the masses. It is not even an older band. Mäax is a younger band with an album and an EP to its name. This disc was recorded in 2009. Yet, the studio so-called surely is no more than four-track console (so 1984) and the music sounds so badly produced one wonders how deliberate it all is. Could it be tongue-in-cheek? After all, the disc’s title is stupid beyond belief, but the music is so vintage underground, the riffs (that one can hear) so authentic and the band’s image so punkish early death that one can only admire the end-result. The fast riffing on Bastards is the best since Destructor circa 1986! Fans of Necrophagia circa 1985 need this now!
