COMMONWEALTH OF AMERICAN NATIVES, THE: The Filth and the Furry: Vol. 1: EP

Mar 29, 2016

First off, what’s up with their band name? The Commonwealth Of American Natives sounds just like their cover art—all cats, pentagrams, splattered gothic graphics, et cetera. They play bro-ey-sounding metal hardcore—with Rancid ska and even a dash of Marilyn Manson—that maybe Fat Wreck would put out. The vocals are grizzled shrieks that are intentionally unnerving. Flip to Side B with “Diabla Vista Pantalones de Gato” to experience the most punishing of breakdowns. Pass.
