ELEGY: Cemetery Earth: 7”

This debut EP oughta cause waves outside of the Bay Area. In five songs, Elegy brings back early ‘80s U.K. punk in the same vein as GBH and Discharge. Out of San Francisco, this three-armed band shreds like a chainsaw with dense chords creating that deep, dark wave of guitar that makes you grit your teeth and take that first step in the pit. With racing drums hurtling bald faced toward oblivion, this is pyramid-studded, leather-jacket-wearin’, mohawk-sportin’ kind of punk. With a little improvement on mixing, Elegy should be your next favorite up and comer. Looking forward to more tunes. Recommended.
