CLOSET BURNER: Self-titled: 12”EP

Mar 18, 2015

Closet Burner crank out short, sharp blasts of hardcore thrash that are straight to the point, lyrically and musically. Sometimes they slow down just a smidge, displaying a catchy side, like in the very short “Gay Majority” and “The Beast.” Musically, they remind me of Capitalist Casualties, a little bit of Infest and similar bands of that nature. The entire record revolves around gay rights, and it’s nice to see/hear them get across the anger and frustration and not go the campy route, unlike some bands I dare not mention. They come out swinging right from the start with “Under the Radar” and keep on going until they end with the Warpath cover of “Abomination” with the apt chorus of “Fuck you, I’m queer.”
