HELLBASTARD: Sons of Bitches: 12” EP

I’m sorry, Hellbastard, but this is bullshit. I could maybe look past the fact that you used twelve inches of vinyl for four songs, but you listed six on the sleeve. Sorry, “Wolfsong” is just the sound of wolves howling. That doesn’t count as a song. Neither does the throwaway reggae track, “Throw the Petrol Bomb.” To make matters worse, I’ve heard the four songs before. Three of them are on the split with Dresden. One is a rerecording of an old track. Don’t get me wrong, these songs are killer, and I said as much in my review of the Dresden split (seriously dudes, those guitar solos!). But why did you release them again, making it look like there’s twice as much stuff when there really isn’t? I think your fans should just buy the Dresden split. More metal for their dollars.
