FULL OF HELL / CALM THE FIRE: Split: 7”

May 21, 2014

I want to love Full Of Hell, I really do. But it always seems like something’s missing with this band. I appreciate that chaos and noise are essentially part and parcel of FOH’s brand of hardcore, but they just don’t seem to pull it off as well as the genre’s forebears—your Converges, your Botches, etc. Calm The Fire’s side of the split is a bit more interesting, but also leaves something to be desired. Crusty, punk-metal from Poland that is probably total destruction live, but as is the case with much of this particular sub-sect, the recorded version just seems to blur and run together.
