AUTARCH / LANDBRIDGE: Split: 12”

Seven heavier-than-heavy songs on this hardcore heavyweight split. From Ashes Rise and Tragedy are the obvious reference points for both of these bands. Superb musicianship and production make this an enjoyably dark listen. Both bands bring the riffs and the lyrical heft to make this a worthwhile addition to the “bleak and depressing” section of your record collection. –Chad Williams (Replenish, replenishrecords.com / IFB, ifbrecords.com / Alerta Antifascista, no-parasan.org)
