AUTARKEIA / ME AND GOLIATH: Split: LP

Both bands mix ‘90s-style chaotic hardcore with something crustier. Me And Goliath are especially heavy without sacrificing tunefulness, bringing to mind black metal-influenced hardcore bands like Union Of Uranus and One Eyed God Prophecy. Autarkeia’s winding, syncopated guitar lines hint at something cool to come, but the songs are sloppy and overlong. I suspect that their next release will come together with more confidence.
