Kort Prosess Record Reviews
KORT PROSESS - 1993/94 CDEP
instructions are specific: this shouldn't cost much more than two vinyl
singles, and the extra songs on this aren't "bonus-tracks". umm... well,
the facts would state: this is a reissue of their two singles (one
remastered) and threee previously unreleased (not "bonus", remember?)
songs. facts would also state this is by far one of the best bands out
of europe in the last couple of years - buffeting hardcore played with
serious intensity -- memorable songs, all the critical elements in
abundance. great shit, a real treat to gethose "extra tracks" as well!
this is a combination of 7"s and some bonus-tracks remastered onto disc.
i'm guessing these guys are from norway (the lyrics are written in a
foreign language). i'm not sure, but they have that european sound (if
you know what that means). pretty straight forward high-end guitar and
tougher vocals kind of making this a heavy RAW POWER with tighter
musicianship. once in a while i'll hear some SEPTIC DEATH stuff in
there. very interesting, but normally not my type of thing. (RUST,
KORT PROSESS - Svart Natt double 7" and CDEP
whoa. the kings of norwegian hardcore return - and with a vengeance - 16
songs spread out over a double EP. somehow managing to spike hardcore
with equal amounts of speed, intricacy and verge -- it's overly
simplistic to just call it hardcore -- while that's the foundation, the
structure isn't so easily pigeonholed. can only hope with the recent
success of other norwegian bands, they start to get half the recognition
they deserve. (MRR)
this double 7" is really nicely packaged. the cover is nice, the art is
great, the booklet is tasty. aesthetically speaking, this is awesome.
the music is harsh. there is a sense of the melodic buried underneath
the harsh style, but it isn't easily heard. the vocals are irritatingly
rough. there are 16 songs on this double record, which means fast little
ditties. the label describes KORT PROSESS as "traditional norwegian hc".
that is a pretty good description. i like KORT PROSESS, but I have to
admit that I can only take so many cracks to the skull before I am worn
out. their sound is hard, and maybe I am getting old, but at times it is
almost too hard for my ears. anyway, this is very well done.
everything about this record is great (with the exception of they're
break up). tight as fuck intricate hardcore, with deep punchy vocals,
great production so you can hear the constant changes in the music, a
musical gem! after you are done rockin' out to this mad display, each
record is slipped into its own printed inner sleeve, placed along with
the booklet, which contains lyrics that appear in they're native tongue
but english explanations are provided, plus well done hand drawn black
and white pictures, into its well crafted protective outer shell until
next time! (Profane Existence #36)
this is really awesome heavy hardcore with full power and a brutal
urgent intensity - and it rocks, too! 16 new songs on this double 7" in
a beautiful package with nice design as i've seen before with HeartFirst
Records. KORT PROSESS are from norway - and play "traditional norwegian
hardcore". this is heavy powerful stuff, played fast and tight with a
galloping beat and a really deep gruff voice at the forefront. this is
great and it rocks, too!!! (FLIPSIDE)
metallic Norwegian fjordcore with a singer who sounds like Felix from
RF7, all packaged to look like a 7". good stuff. (FLIPSIDE about the CD)
KORT PROSESS - 1993 7"
fast, choppy hardcore that has a few hints of melody, but for the most
part it's spastic. i'm not sure where in europe these guys are from, but
it has that "new school" german sound. eight fast songs with great
layout and artwork. (HEARTATTACK)
KORT PROSESS - 1994 7"
absolutely raging stuff outta oslo, norway. it's superheavy brutal HC
that has some, admittedly metal leanings. i have to wonder if they've
ever tasted RORSCHACH. Nine songs in eight+ minutes. cool booklet, too.
their second 7". (MRR)
horrifying thrash noises from these brutal norsemen. sonic destruction
that tramples you under their boots. the buzzsaw guitar rips and slashes
with abandon. of the nine songs on this little platter, most of the
tracks are well under a minute long. just knowing this you already know
that this is going to be one really wild ride. it is up there with the
brutal noises emanating from their other scandinavian neighbors.
KORT PROSESS - Trondheim, UFFA 03.10.2009
Da det legendariske punkbandet KORT PROSESS fra Horten spilte på Uffa
lørdag 3. oktober, var det mange som hadde møtt opp på Uffa for å
overvære konserten. Først skulle Bitre Barn, et ungt og uerfarent
punkband fra Trondheim spille, deretter Victimized og så Kort Prosess.
En fin pakke for et sultent publikum.
Så var det Kort Prosess. En tightere punkekonsert skal du lete lenge
etter. Man skulle ikke tro at bandet ikke har spilt live sammen på
lenge, men det låt bare helt nydelig. Ultradyktige musikere som vet hvor
de har de andre i bandet, gjør at en konsert sjelden blir dårlig. Kort
Prosess spilte så bra at hele konserten deres bare fløy av sted og vips
så var den over, og det første du tenkte på, var at dette faktisk var
