Hard electronics polygamist Matt Fanale, aka Caustic, has been churning out his blend of industrial combined with everything from techno, punk, ebm, breakcore, and beyond for going on 7 years now, releasing most of it on California's Crunch Pod label, and January brings Caustic's new 2CD THIS IS JIZZCORE to the ears of the world with nearly 2 hours of original material and remixes. While the title is a joke on artists self-titling their own genres to fit their egos, it's arguably Caustic's most "serious" work yet, with tracks careening from headbanging stompfests to glitched out clubtracks to scream-along anthems. Caustic isn't concerned as much with sticking with one style, but morphing the music like an mp3 player on shuffle to kick maximum ass on every track. In a world where attention spans have turned to Jello, Caustic accepts the challenge like a six year old souped up on pixie sticks and drags musical cohorts from everywhere from XP8 to Null Device to Everything Goes Cold and The Gothsicles. There's even a collaboration between Caustic and the legendary Tom Shear of Assemblage 23, under his idm project Nerve Filter.
