GELD - "BEYOND THE FLOOR" LP
IRON LUNG / STATIC SHOCK RECORDS:
"I don´t know what´s going on in Australia, but lately amazing bands have been popping out. I have to confess I didn´t know Geld before Static Shock announced the release of Beyond The Floor, but here I am now, buying all its discography. 2020 has been an incredible year for hardcore punk releases, but without a doubt this is my favourite record so far. If hell exists, this is how devil´s nightmares would sound like. First time I listened to them I got the same goosebumps as the first time I listened to Impalers´ Cellar Dweller. Imagine a crossover between the fury and strenght of Impalers, the rawness of Glue, the abbrasive sound of Candy and a lot of Burning Spirits influence. Well, Geld is this and much more. It´s really something else. Guitars are fucking sick, the bass have some rad lines and the voice is like the agony scream of a maniac sentenced to death. It´s as dense and hot as magma, fast, crude and completely deranged. They have created a subterranean world of darkness and confussion, where an extreme noise is played nonstop to torture the disturbed minds who inhabit it.
I don´t know if there is such thing as psychodelic hardcore, but if that´s the case Geld are the genre´s international ambassadors. Do yourself a favor and listen to them, cause there´s no other band playing like this. I can´t wait to receive my copy. Kudos to Static Shock for putting out this brutal record." – Alex SN, Underground Zine
"Melbourne punks Geld blend off-the-chain musicianship with brain-frying creativity, delivering outré punk that’s simultaneously plugged into the heart of incendiary hardcore. Geld’s second full-length, Beyond the Floor, rides the line between mind-blowing, mind-expanding, and mind-crushing, and Geld’s inspirations—“pills, meth, booze, weed, DMT, hate, betrayal, fear, love, depression, addiction, denial, and broken bones”—all boil in the album’s schizophrenic core.
Throughout Beyond The Floor, bleeding-raw shards of noise and pyrotechnic d-beat insanity fuel throat-ripping audio violence. Kicked-in-the-teeth hardcore powers “Infrasound,” “Invader,” and “Red Mist,” which is matched by blistering-fast psychedelic punk powering “Trench,” “Gedankenfleish” and “L.O.W.A.G. II.” Geld fuse hallucinogenic happenings to outright berserker free-for-alls, and the result is as ear-splitting as it is acid-spiked: think Confuse covering Poison Idea covering Les Razilles Denudes covering Krömosom. (Actually, I once saw Geld described as Disclose deconstructing free jazz, which works well too.)
Beyond The Floor is weirder, wilder, and somehow even tighter than Geld’s previous releases—which, FYI, are unrestrained paranoiac nightmares too. Geld perfectly blend breathless experimentalism with gut-punching hardcore, and all the barely corralled chaos on Beyond the Floor is a genre-trampling triumph. Highly recommended. 10/10." – Craig Hayes, Last Rites
