BORDER BASTARD: XVII: CDEP

A three-piece from Italy that, apparently, has been shredding since 2010. The sound here veers between full-frontal punk that recalls The Damned, while other tracks lean on stoner rock standards. It’s still more Motörhead then straight-up sludge in most cases. “Satan’s Priest” lives up to its name. Burning flames and taking names! Solid work.
