AX, THE: Fossils of Our Kind: 10” EP

A two-piece experimenting with a hybrid of Helmet/400 Blows-styled heavy rock. Sadly, with all that promise, the final product comes across as very bland, particularly in the vocals. Judging by the photograph on the back of the record, these fellas appear to be of the young persuasion and armed with some superior quality instruments. That’s not to say their age affects their capabilities. If anything, I hope their talent has the potential of maturing along with them. Then perhaps they’d have something going on.
