DIE WASTED: Self-titled: 7″

Die Wasted play sleazy punk/metal. Every tune seems to be about drinking. These songs certainly had more creativity to them than I expected, but it wasn’t enough to really grab me. Both songs are overly long and don’t hold up to repeated listening. Definitely not an essential release. They do, however, offer customized guitar picks on their website. I wonder if they throw them out to the “crowd” at their shows.
