ACRYLICS: “Structure” b/w “Gluttony”: 7”

Two more tracks of ugly and uncompromising hardcore from Santa Rosa’s Acrylics. It’s amazing that within the chaotic uproar there are melodic moments, but to the credit of the band it manages to squeeze them into the mayhem. “Gluttony,” the more accessible track, has a touch of East Bay Ray style punk/surf guitar, but for the main part on both tracks, the six string sound makes me consider a large turbine engine repeatedly being hit by a giant boulder. This is the best release I got to review for this issue. –Rich Cocksedge (Iron Lung, ironlungrecords@hotmail.com, ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com / Drunken Sailor, drunkensailorrecs@gmail.com, drunkensailorrecords.co.uk)
