Easy Action are one of the best bands of the past decade or so, spewing their hard rock meets noisy hardcore attack with John Brannon of Negative Approach/Laughing Hyenas on the mic. The addition of Toni Romeo from the Trash Brats on bass is a nice addition to the mix and an inspired choice. The two tunes on this single are the most like the Laughing Hyenas that Easy Action have ever sounded, but there is still a good bit of rock in the tunes. Snakewing turn in two tunes of lo-fi guttural metal that doesn’t quite veer into thrash or quite into death metal. Fans of lo-fi sludge of the New Orleans persuasion will probably find a whole lot to like with Snakewing.
