CAUSTIC CHRIST: Lycanthropy: LP

I think this is the bands second full length. They also have a few 7”s and splits out there. Their new release seems to have slowed down a tad compared to their past releases. But the power is not lost and they are not playing super slow by any means. They tread more in the Black Flag meets Blast sound of punk rock this time around in my opinion. They try new things as they continue to develop their sound, playing with a sound that is equally thick as it is powerful. Guitars are driving with a strong thrust of controlled distortion, the bass is full-bodied and punchy, drums are loud and forceful, and vocals require no lyric sheet because they are phonetically shouted and are easily understood. This release continues on the fact that this band is one of the many premier bands here in America. If you haven’t noticed them before, maybe you should now.
