COWER: Hatred Songs: 7″

Cower resides somewhere in the audible crusty punk house between Iron Lung and Tragedy. Pounding at times, driving at others. It’s always heavy, and it’s always intense. Amidst the legions of copycats and style-prisoners, Cower take healthy helping of various sub-sub-genres such as power violence, d-beat, noise, and melodic crust to formulate a sound that seems naturally punishing. And while these songs of hatred may not be executed as proficiently as the aforementioned bands might have, they are still a promising detonation of unforgiving, unwavering noise.
