HELLKITE: Fun Kite: CD

Feral, mostly mid-tempo hardcore that sounds like it was either birthed in some early-’80s Midwestern hellhole or crawled out of San Francisco’s legendary Vats. They keep things simple and abrasive, with guitars a-buzzin’, vocals a-shoutin’, and song titles serving as the sole line of their respective choruses. Effectively executed and delivered with conviction.
