CURMUDGEON : Self-titled: EP

Decent modern day powerviolence. Kind of reminds me of Spazz, with a singer who sounds like Max Ward did in Scholastic Deth. The songs are short and to the point. They stay to the formula, which I’m sure a lot of people like. But there’s not much here to make them stand out from the legions of bands playing this style today. It’s not a terrible record, but not one that will get many listens as the years tick by. The packaging is nice, though. Comes housed in a cover with the back folding out, a lyric sheet inside, dark gray streaked vinyl, and an obi band to keep it all together.
