DECAY AFTER DEATH: Alcohol: 7”

This band is all speed and killer riffs. The vocals are a huge, reverberated, pissed-off diatribe, and the rest of the recording is all blown out, but the mix levels everything together. The guitar is absolutely sick, with nods to Motörhead and British crust, but confident and forward with a modern vibe. The thing I love most about this record is that it is a total “background record” for a party, but sitting down and listening to it by yourself with headphones provides a much more interesting experience. It’s kind of hard for heavy records to go both ways like that lately. A highly recommended, rough around the edges, distinctly punk listen that will probably fly under the radar.
