BUKKAKE BOYS: Self-titled: LP

Straightforward fastcore from this Atlanta band that plays like you would expect from them at this point. It flows together as an album well and the songs are played at a pace that makes them seem like they may just all fall over on top of each other. They get compared a lot to Japanese hardcore, and I see a direct line between them and bands like Forward, but to me this sounds more like a heavier version of Californian hardcore from the ‘80s. It’s good to see the band finally holding their own on an LP after building a good reputation based on their live show and 7” outputs, and they churn out a few songs that are downright catchy in their frenzied pace.
