BACKSLIDER: Consequences: 10”

Sick Eyehategod-style opening into crushing powerviolence with start, stops, sputters, and spurts. There is a lot going on in the rhythm of these songs and while the band can be described as “pummeling,” they pull it off with finesse. The riffs are good and pull influence from punk as well as sludge and death metal. The result is a layered and engaging listen. Everything is played well, but what I like most about this record is how each song is tied together and the whole record feels like one cohesive composition. Basic recommendations for fans of Weekend Nachos, Iron Lung, and Triac. A welcome addition to the modern powerviolence catalog.
