DEATH CAMP: Teenage Nightmare: 7” EP

May 08, 2013

NYHC type stuff, though these guys don’t get sucked down into the duller aspects of that sound. They keep the urgency and razor-sharp sound of hardcore intact. Plus they have a more sinister sound in their metal influence, as you can hear in “Punch/Line,” with the slower, crunchy riffs, screaming guitar, lurching tempo, and feedback towards the end. The lumbering opening of “Curtain Call” is a killer. It gets nice and dark—with thundering bass lines, and a percussion kicking hard—the guitar comes in for a measure or two, then they open the gates and go for broke. Pretty damn good record. Hope to hear more!
