This is a posthumous review of the last EP by these Minneapolis punks. This prog style screamo trio, all named Kyle, put together these four tracks as their “goodbye” to their loyal fans last year. With throat searing-vocals, grindcore chords, and rapid-fire drums, Cowards merges an ominous bass line in “Solitude” for a decibel-shattering finale. But fear not, the Kyles will probably be back or absorbed by the surplus of punk bands in MN.
