BLOODSTAINS: Self-titled: 7″

Bruising, meaty hardcore that swings a spiked 2×4 right at your soft and tenders and evokes some of the same heavy rage as bands like latter-day Exploited and Sweden’s Disfear. Absolutely no new twists here, this one wins on simple drag-you-by-the-hair-down-the-stairs, ass-kicking execution alone. Me like. Me want more.
