FRUSTRATION: Self-titled: 7"

Mar 03, 2011

The two songs on the A side of this record are good mid-tempo punk stompers with a metal influence ala Motörhead. The gruff vocals and distinct old school crossover sound bring the old Canadian Death Sentence to mind, a compliment in itself. The guitar solos come out of nowhere and tear through the production; this shit is hot! The band shows themselves up on the B-side, though. “Grey” and “Under the Grass” retain the aesthetic of the first two songs, but add in a dose of melody to the vocals that give the songs a little more depth and flavor more akin to the later Bruisers songs. Solid release all in all.
