DEADLY REIGN: Slave: 7”EP

Part of Profane Existence’s onslaught of limited edition singles, this trio out of Austin, TX smolders. With members of World Burns To Death, Scarred For Life, and Till Death, their slice of d-Beat is crust and shoulders over the rest. These three tracks of pissed-off fuck you vocals and chainsaw guitar dirge start in with “Suffer,” which ebbs right into “Sinister Minds,” a double kick drum affront to warmongers and national security. “Employment of Slaves,” adds to the anti-corp polemic on the problem of work, throwing in a sound bite of ‘80s guitar solo. Tight, melodic, and raging; they’re rallying for a hanging and waving the torches. Recommended.
