The quintet from Olsztyn, Poland strikes back with the second full length in over a decade. Coalescing grind/crust elements characteristic of early Third Degree recordings and gloomy, complex song structures that veer away from most of today's modern metal acts' extreme face, Third Degree explore what has yet been unexplored, forging their own path in heavy music. "Punk Sugar" was produced and mixed by Third Degree's guitarist Szymon Czech (Nyia, Antigama).
"Incorporating variety and a pinch of experimentation into the mix should get Third Degree the kind of attention that sent Antigama packing for the land of Relapse (...)." —Metal Maniacs
"Think Discharge meets Killing Joke meets Voivod. In a very dark room. With a very dark sense of humor." —Decibel Magazine
"Along with Antigama, Third Degree are one of the most unique yet blistering grindcore bands around right now. There is enough classic grindcore on display in the sound to please even the most devout follower of the genre, but the band definitely moves in unique directions and this is very far from being a typical grindcore album in any way shape or form." —Unbound
"Punk Sugar is a pretty creative mix of Vader meets Killing Joke meets The Exploited." —Ray Van Horn, Jr (The Metal Minute)
