Blown Out|Rainbow Grave|Mothwasp: Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham – live review

It negates everything, at one point in 10 Million tons of shit they go through a list of what they hate about you, ‘I hate your pets’ being my favourite, although I’m not sure favourite is the right word. The vocals are harsh and cold but you can understand every word.

It’s like unwelcome memories of childhood nightmares that rise up in the middle of the night. Strangely compelling but not entirely welcome.
