CRIMEWAVE: Savage Reaction: LP

Another band that decides to take a precarious road, in this case hardcore with a heavy dollop of rock mixed into the batter, and it pays off in spades. Songs are clean ‘n’ tight, to the point, rife with great riffage, and have an extra bit of swagger built into the rhythm section to give it all a little extra personality. Good stuff, especially “Fashion Assassinate,” which gets the blood bumpin’ with its zippy tempo.
