This Boston-based outfit plays heavy, face-pummeling ‘80s hardcore with political lyrics. Featuring ex-Ripshit vocalist Krystina Krysiak tearing it up on the mic, Curmudgeon are everything you could want in a band of this style: Tons of low end, some blastbeats, plenty of breakdowns, and the occasional sing-along. “Shut Out,” and “Spineless,” are my favorite tracks, both because of how epic they rage and because of their strong lyrical content.
