HATEWAVES: The Tombs: 5″

Five inches, seven songs, 45 rpm. That’s the selling point. Brilliantly crafted tongue-in-cheek lyrics with perfectly curated samples over heavy-as-hell grind with biting, memorable riffs. The production is crisp, which fits nicely for this particular brand of chaos. “Swans Tickets” and “Rotten Apple” are the best and most appropriately paired grind songs I’ve heard so far this year. Get this immediately, you will laugh out loud and beat up your neighbors in one breath.
