AGGRO: Maelstrom: 7”

Maelstrom is the right title for this three track single, as it sums up perfectly the turbulent approach of this new Japanese band. Aggro takes the driving force of Zeke, mixes it with the chaotic sound of Brutal Knights, and lays down some gloriously unhinged and chaotic punk. This is one of two 7”s the band released simultaneously on the same label. I’m sure all five songs could have fit on one record but as both feature excellent artwork I’m not complaining. If you like raging guitars and clattering drums colliding to kick up an almighty hullaballoo then this should be up your street.  –Rich Cocksedge (Beerdrop, [email protected], beerdrop.bandcamp.com)
